A Novel NIR Fluorescent Probe to Measure Kidney Disease and Drug Induced Kidney Toxicity In Mice

Introduction

Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) measurement is the gold standard in kidney function assessment and is used to determine progression of kidney disease as well as drug-induced kidney toxicity. In this webinar, presented by Dr. Jeff Peterson, Director of Applied Biology at PerkinElmer, learn how the development of a near infrared (NIR) fluorescent-labeled form of inulin provides a non-invasive fluorescent imaging approach that requires very few mice to generate consistent GFR measurements and detection of changes induced by nephrectomy or drug toxicity.
