Home » Ion Indicator » 2-NBDG




2-NBDG is a fluorescent glucose analog that has been used to monitor glucose uptake in live cells, as an indicator of cell viability. Although sensitive to its environment NBD fluorescence typically displays excitation/emission maxima of 465/540 nm and can be visualized using optical filters designed for fluorescein.
