Antonia Red™-dextran are synthesised from well-characterised dextran fractions derived from Leuconostoc mesenteroides. The dextran fractions are then labelled with Antonia Red. The degree of substitution lies between 0.001-0.01.
Antonia Red™-dextran has an absorbance maximum at 583 nm and an emission wavelength of 602 nm in borate buffer at pH 9.0.
Storage and stability
Antonia Red™ dextran is stable for more than 6 years when stored dry in well-sealed containers at ambient temperature
Antonia Red™-dextran dissolves readily in water.
Antonia Red™-dextran is mainly used for studying permeability and microcirculation. It can also be used as a molecular size marker, for studies of drug delivery and more. Antonia Red shows bright fluorescence, has good photo- and chemical stability and is non-pH dependent. Read more about applications here.
