Application Note

VivoTag 680XL (Protocol)

,VivoTag® 680 XL is a near infrared fluorescent imaging labeling agent containing an N-hydroxysuccinimide (NHS)-ester. Labeling reagents, such as VivoTag 680 XL are commonly used for labeling proteins. The NHS ester moiety reacts with amino groups to form amide bonds. Lysines within proteins, including antibodies, are available as targets for this chemical conjugation.,Protein labeling efficiency may vary depending upon the type of protein labeled, so different conjugation ratios may need to be attempted to attain success. For near infrared fluorophore conjugation, ratios of fluorophore to protein of 4:1 have been seen to generate effective imaging agents. Not all antibodies or proteins (independent of target specificity) make good imaging agents, due to long half-lives and/or excessive accumulation in non-target sites.

White Paper

The Role of In Vivo Imaging in Drug Discovery and Development

The primary goal of preclinical imaging is to improve the odds of clinical success and reduce drug discovery and development time and costs. Advances in non-invasive in vivo imaging techniques have raised the use of animal models in drug discovery and development to a new level by enabling quick and efficient drug screening and evaluation. Read this White Paper to learn how preclinical in vivo imaging helps to ensure that smart choices are made by providing Go/No-Go decisions and de-risking drug candidates early on, significantly reducing time to the clinic and lowering costs all while maximizing biological understanding.
