Zinquin free acid
Zinquin is an UV-excitable, blue fluorescent zinc indicator. Zinc is believed to be involved in the suppression of apoptosis and thought to play important roles in many neural activities.

MQAE (N-(Ethoxycarbonylmethyl)-6-methoxyquinolinium bromide) is an improved chloride indicator that has greater sensitivity to chloride (Ksv= 200M-1) than SPQ (Ksv=118 M-1) and higher fluorescence quantum yield. The ester group of MQAE may slowly hydrolyze inside cells, resulting in a change in its fluorescence response.
Zinquin ethyl ester
Zinquin is an UV-excitable, blue fluorescent zinc indicator. Zinquin ethyl ester is membrane-permeable and is hydrolyzed into Zinquin free acid once entering cells.
The fluorescence of SPQ is specifically quenched by chloride via collision. Therefore, chloride concentration is measured by monitoring the degree of fluorescence decrease.
BCECF, AM Ester, 1 mg/mL in Anhydrous DMSO
BCECF, AM ester is membrane-permeant and thus can be loaded into cells via incubation. This product is a mixture of three molecular species, all of which are readily hydrolyzed by endogenous esterases into a single BCECF free acid form once they are in the cells.
