Product name2-NBD-Glucose, Fluorescent glucose uptake probe
DescriptionCell-permeable fluorescent glucose uptake probe
Fluorescently-labeled deoxyglucose analog, used to directly monitor glucose uptake by living cells and tissues. Also used as a topical contrast reagent for the detection of neoplasia. Uptake can be monitored by real-time confocal, high-resolution or wide-field fluorescence microscopy and flow cytometry.
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. Store under desiccating conditions. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Solubility overviewSoluble in ethanol to 50 mM and in DMSO to 25 mM
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
