IVISense Neutrophil Elastase 680 FAST Fluorescent Probe

Neutrophil Elastase (NE) is a protease secreted by neutrophils. Neutrophils are the first responders of the innate immune system and play a crucial role in fighting invading pathogens. Thought to be indiscriminate killers, research shows neutrophils are implicated in chronic inflammatory diseases and contribute to injury repair.

Better understand neutrophilic response in vivo with IVISense Neutrophil Elastase 680 FAST NIR fluorescent probe. IVISense Neutrophil Elastase 680 probe can detect NE post-degranulation or netosis from activated neutrophils.

IVISense Neutrophil Elastase 680 FAST is a member of a family of activatable fluorescent imaging agents comprising a novel architecture, termed F.A.S.T. (Fluorescent Activatable Sensor Technology) that confers an improved pharmacokinetic profile with a broader range of early imaging time points. This architecture also offers higher target specific signal with reduced background.

This NIR agent is a neutrophil elastase activatable agent that is optically silent upon injection and produces fluorescent signal after cleavage by elastase produced by neutrophil cells. Neutrophil elastase is a key protease involved in acute lung injury, acute respiratory distress syndrome, as well as many other inflammatory processes such as emphysema, cystic fibrosis, COPD, wound healing, rheumatoid arthritis, ischemia-reperfusion and many others.

IVISense Neutrophil Elastase 680 FAST fluorescent imaging agent is a selective neutrophil elastase-activatable agent designed for imaging of this serine protease both in vitro and in vivo. The half-life in plasma of Neutrophil Elastase 680 FAST is 4 hours.
