Product name Fluo-3, AM ester
CAS Number 121714-22-5
Molecular Formula C51H50Cl2N2O23

Product Properties

Formulation Orange red solid
Features & Benefits • Fluo-3 provides intense fluorescence upon binding calcium, detected at a maximum excitation at 506nm and emission at 526 nm.
• Useful for fluorescence and confocal microscopy, flow cytometry, and microplate screening applications.
• More selective for Ca2+ than EDTA and EGTA.
• Excellent application in high throughput drug screening.
Molecular weight 1129.9
Usage notes • Soluble in DMSO.
• If you use a culture medium containing serum, serum esterase will decompose AM ester, thereby reducing the effection of Fluo-3, AM into cells. In addition, the culture medium containing phenol red can make high background. So before adding working solution, try to remove residual medium.
• Prepare and use solutions on the same day.
• The stock solution should be used promptly. Any unused solution need to be aliquoted and frozen at < -20°C.
• Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles, and protect from light.
Storage instructions Store at -20°C. The product can be stored for up to 12 months. Protect from light.
Shipping Gel pack with blue ice.

Additional Information

Background Membrane-permeant AM ester form of Fluo-3 that can be loaded into cells via incubation. Fluo-3 AM ester itself does not bind Ca2+, but it is readily hydrolyzed to fluo-3 by endogenous esterases once the dye is inside the cells.
