Replaces Prod. #: ALX-620-009

Rhod-2 AM has the longest fluorescent emission signal of the commonly used calcium indicators. It contains a rhodamine-like fluorophore, making it suitable for use with argon and krypton laser excitation sources. Rhod-2 signal intensity one of the strongest of all the calcium probes. Rhod 2 is especially suitable probe for intracellular calcium monitoring by confocal laser-scanning microscopy and flow cytometry. The dissociation constant of Rhod 2 with calcium is among the highest of all the fluorescent calcium probes, providing a wider range for monitoring calcium concentration. Rhod-2 AM is an acetoxymethyl ester derivative of Rhod-2 that can be easily loaded into cells by passive incubation. Wavelength Maxima: Excitation 549nm, Emission 578nm
