Dextran Conjugates


Dextran conjugates are hydrophilic polysaccharides with low toxicity that can used for tissue sections, in vivo neurons, and cultured cells. ABP Biosciences offers a wide range of fluorescent dextran conjugates. These dextran conjugates are fixable and can be treated with formaldehyde or glutaraldehyde. 

These dextran conjugates can be used for a variety of applications such as cell lineage tracing, neuronal tracing, investigating cell-cell communication in gap junctions, or tracking endocytosis and pinocytosis.
