Next Generation Red-Fluorescent Calcium Indicators CaTM-2 & CaSiR-1

Next Generation Red-Fluorescent Calcium Indicators CaTM-2 & CaSiR-1
Goryo Chemical's CalFluor™ is a series of fluorescent probes comprising red-fluorescent CaTM and near-infrared CaSiR to detect calcium ions. Both dyes are suitable for multicolor imaging with other green-fluorescent dyes/protein such as GFP.

Press Release ( - GöTTINGEN, Germany - Jun 19, 2017 - Goryo Chemical, Japan, distributed in Europe by MoBiTec GmbH, Germany, is a manufacturer of high-end next generation fluorescent probes and research chemicals for diverse life science applications.

CaTM-2™ and CaTM-2™ AM, the cell membrane-permeable derivative, are red-fluorescent calcium probes based on TokyoMagenta, a new red-colored fluorophore. They are suited to analyze calcium ion concentrations in solution or the cytoplasm of cells and emit fluorescence with high sensitivity in response to Ca2+. The fluorescence emission maximum is at 609 nm.

The fluorescence emission maximum of near-infrared CaSiR-1™ and CaSiR-1™ AM is at 664 nm.

Owing to the spectral characteristics multicolor imaging is possible with CaTM-2™ or CaSiR-1™ in combination with fluorescent dyes or  proteins of which the fluorescence emission is in the UV or green/orange area such as Hoechst, Fluorescein, Rhodamine, GFP, YFP, etc. Near-infrared fluorophores are favorable in terms of greater tissue penetration, reduced overlap with background autofluorescence, and the excitation exerts less phototoxicity to cells and tissues.

The benefits of near-infrared fluorogenic Ca2+ indicators:

• Fluoresce in the deep-red region
• Deeper tissue penetration
• Reduced background autofluorescence
• Reduced phototoxicity to cells and tissues
• Detect Ca2+ at high sensitivity
• Visualize fluctuation of Ca2+ in cytoplasm

Next to CaTM-2™ and CaSiR-1™ MoBiTec offers a range of further ion indicators. Please inquire for details:
