NIR-II Dye and NIR-I-II Dye
NEAR INFRA-RED dye TECHNOLOGY
Fluorescence-based optical imaging is indispensable to investigating biological systems with high spatial resolution and fast temporal speed.
Imaging in the second near infra-red window (NIR-II), beyond 1000nm, is promising for deep-tissue high resolution optical imaging in vivo:
- Compared to visible and near infra-red (below ~900nm), the NIR-II window enables reduced scattering of photons traversing through tissues
- NIR-II optical window imaging can resolve in the sub-5 micron to sub-100 micron range at 3-5 millimeter depth though the intact body and brain of mice.
- High speed/frame rate imaging allows for blood-flow speed mapping in individual capillary vessels, capable of resolving flow patterns within a single cardiac cycle of mice
- Non-invasive brain imaging can be achieved without craniotomy
Nirmidas’ NIR-II fluorophores are of high quantum yield and can be functionalized by a variety of targeting moieties for molecular imaging and vessel/organ imaging in vitro and in vivo.
