Overview

  • Product name

    RuBi-Glutamate (mM/ml), caged-glutamate compound
  • Description

    Novel caged-glutamate compound, uncaged by visible light. 1 ml water soluble pack.
  • Biological description

    Novel caged-glutamate compound based on ruthenium photochemistry. Excited with visible wavelengths and releases glutamate after one- or two-photon excitation. It has high quantum efficiency and can be used at low concentrations. Enables the photoactivation of neuronal dendrites and circuits with visible or two-photon light sources, achieving single cell, or even single spine, precision.

    Soluble in 1 ml water to give specified mM/ml concentration. Find out more.

  • Handling

    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.
