Product Description

SynaptoRed™ C2M (also known as FM®5-95), is a red fluorescent probe used to follow synaptic vesicles. SynaptoRed™ C2M is slightly more water soluble than SynaptoRed™ C2 (equivalent to FM®4-64).

  • λExEm (membranes) = ~510/750 nm*
  • Dark purple solid soluble in water
  • MW: 565.43

* Excitation/emission settings of 515/640 nm have been used for detection of yeast vacuole staining with SynaptoRed™ C2 (FM®4-64), and should be applicable to SynaptoRed™ C2M. FM is a registered trademark of Thermo Fisher Scientific.
