TPEN

TPEN (Tetrakis-(2-pyridylmethyl)ethylenediamine) is an excellent heavy metal chelator while it does not affect calcium, magnesium, sodium, or potassium concentrations. Thus, TPEN is a useful tool to identify effects of heavy metals (zinc, iron, copper, manganese, etc.) on fluorescent indicators for other ions.

    Calcium Calibration Buffer Kit

    This kit provides a range of calibration buffers with accurate calcium concentrations and is useful for the calibration of fluorescent Ca2 indicators (1,2). This product contains 50 mL each of components A and B.

    A-23187 Free Acid

    A-23187, also known as Calcimycin or Calcium Ionophore III, is a calcium ionophore that rapidly equilibrates intracellular and extracellular calcium concentrations. It is commonly used for in situ calibrations of fluorescent calcium indicators.

    Fluo-4 AM Ester

    Membrane-permeant form of Fluo-4 calcium indicator. Fluo-4 AM ester itself does not bind Ca2 , but it is readily hydrolyzed to Fluo-4 by endogenous esterases once inside cells.

    Fluo-3, AM Ester

    Membrane-permeant AM ester form of Fluo-3 that can be loaded into cells via incubation. Because of the relatively low water solubility of the AM ester, Pluronic F-127, a mild detergent, is often used as a dispersing agent to facilitate dye loading.

    DMSO, Anhydrous

    Anhydrous DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide; methyl sulfoxide) is recommended for preparing stock solutions of AM ester dyes, reactive dyes and other related moisture-sensitive products.

    Indo-1, AM Ester

    Indo-1, AM ester is membrane-permeant and thus can be loaded into cells via incubation. Because of the relatively low water solubility of the AM ester, Pluronic F-127, a mild detergent, is often used as a dispersing agent to facilitate cell loading.
