4-trifluoromethyl-7-hydrazinyl-2H-chromen-2-one (TFCH) is a novel fluorescent biocompatible probe has been developed to detect oxidative damage in live cells and tissues in as little as 5 minutes. TO accomplish this, TFCH utilizes the irreversible reaction of radicals with biomolecules that result in the covalent addition of carbonyls to biomolecules. This probe has been shown to outperform other commercially available toxicity and reactive oxygen species assays.
This probe has been shown to be highly sensitive. The limit of detection is orders of magnitude smaller than other previously reported fluorophores resulting in less reagent needed to detect carbonylation.
TFCH is rapid, live cell and tissue compatible and also be used in fixed cells and tissues.
Detection of Oxidative Stress damage in a myriad of cells and tissues.
Detection of an early biomarker for disease, toxicity, cell and tissue damage.
Use in live cells and tissues, fixed cells and tissues and existing biopsy material.
