What is iRFP? How do I image it?
iRFP is the near-infrared fluorescent protein. Imanis offers iRFP713, which has an excitation of 690 nm and an emission of 713 nm. Unlike other fluorescent proteins, iRFP can be used for in vivo imaging. In vivo, iRFP is imaged using an optical imager with cooled CCD cameras. The imager must be equipped with an appropriate laser and filter combination. In vitro, iRFP can be imaged using a fluorescent microscope equipped with appropriate light and filter combinations.
