General description

Hypoxia is defined as the reduction or lack of oxygen in organs, tissues, or cells. Hypoxia in living tissue closely relates to a wide array of pathologies, including cancer and ischemia. Existing hypoxia detection probes, such as pimonidazole, require cell fixation followed by immunostaining.

The BioTracker 520 Green Hypoxia Dye is a fluorescent imaging probe for the detection of hypoxia in living cells. This probe is as sensitive as pimonidazole and can be used for live cell fluorescence imaging and flow cytometry applications.
