Do you need bulk/larger quantities?
 
Quin-2 demonstrates a strong affinity for calcium, resulting in a marked shift in ultraviolet absorption and fluorescence spectra versus the unbound state. Quin-2 resembles calcium chelator EGTA in its ability to bind calcium more tightly than magnesium. Quin-2 is a membrane impermeable probe and can be loaded in cells by microinjection, electroporation or scrape loading. The acetomethoxy (AM) version is necessary for passive cell loading. Quin-2 has lower absorptivity and quantum yield values than Fura-2, Indo-1, Fluo-3 and Fluo-4, thus requiring higher loading concentrations. Wavelength Maxima: Excitation 353nm, Emission 495nm
