Invitrogen™ H2DCFDA (H2-DCF, DCF) DFS Item

Chemically reduced form of fluorescein used as an indicator for reactive oxygen species in cells

Supplier:  Invitrogen™ D399

Catalog No. D399



The cell-permeant 2',7'-dichlorodihydrofluorescein diacetate (H2DCFDA) (also known as dichlorofluores cin diacetate) detects reactive oxygen species (ROS) in cells, for example to detect generation of reactive oxygen intermediates in neutrophils and macrophages. Upon cleavage of the acetate groups by intracellular esterases and oxidation, nonfluorescent H2DCFDA is converted to highly fluorescent 2',7'-dichlorofluorescein (DCF).

  • Ex/Em: ∽492 - 495/517 - 527nm
