SMCy 5.5 is a fluorogenic fluorescent probe for imaging lipid droplets that exhibits sharp excitation and emission bands and high brightness. SMCy 5.5 is suitable for use with two-photon microscopy. It is useful for deep tissue imaging and 3D imaging. Excitation/emission maxima for SMCy 5.5 in THF are 643/672 nm; Quantum yield = 0.75; Extinction coefficient = 209, 000 M-1 cm-1. SMCy 5.5 displays high two-photon absoprtion (TPA) cross-section values (13330 GM and 10400 GM at 770 and 820 nm, respectively). The probe also has a click reactive handle.
