Buy nowFluoroNanogold™ Conjugates


With a combined fluorescent label and the Nanogold® gold nanoparticle, label the same sample for both confocal and EM in just one step.

    "FNG [FluoroNanogold™] is a probe containing two different markers; it opens the possibility of imaging the same sample at both the optical and the EM level. Thus, it is easy to perform a multimodal investigation, either on different cells or on the same cell visualized by correlative microscopy."

    The above reference is to an entire chapter on FluoroNanogold, providing a detailed and well illustrated write-up of techniques for combined confocal fluorescence microscopic labeling and electron tomography.

By combining gold and fluorescence into one immunoprobe, the same specimen may be imaged using both fluorescence microscopy (e.g., with a confocal microscope) and at the ultrastructural level by electron microscopy.

FluoroNanogold™is now available with Alexa Fluor®* 546, 488 or 594, giving you the benefits of brighter fluorescence, reduced photobleaching, and compatibility with a wider pH range, or in its original formulation with fluorescein as the fluorophore.

Unlike colloidal golds which quench fluorescence, tiny Nanogold® lets the fluorescence shine through. All components are covalently attached to ensure stability and long shelf life. Fab' antibody fragments are much smaller probes than IgG conjugates, and have shown excellent penetration into cells and nuclei. FluoroNanogold™conjugates are chromatographically purified to eliminate any aggregates, free gold or unattached fluorescent molecules.

  • Unprecedented correlation between fluorescence and EM data.
  • Single labeling procedure means less chance for specimen perturbation.
  • Choice of new fluorophores for brighter fluorescence, lower background and multicolor labeling.
  • Same excellent penetration as found with Nanogold®: much better than 5 and 10 nm colloidal gold probes.
  • FluoroNanogold™ probes are smaller than IgG conjugates (we use Fab' fragments).
  • Covalent coupling of both labels gives stability and long shelf life.
  • Conjugates are stable and fluorescent at a wide range of pH and ionic strengths.

Buy nowAlexa Fluor®* 488 FluoroNanogold™

Our new Alexa Fluor® FluoroNanogold™ conjugates will give you greatly enhanced performance compared with conventional fluorophores. Benefit from greatly improved fluorescence properties, combined with a new level of freedom from background and non-specific binding.
  • Increased fluorescence signal and higher quantum yield - ideal for scarce targets or dynamic systems where exposure needs to be restricted.
  • Fluorescence remains high and consistent across wider pH range.
  • Improved solubility means reduced non-specific interactions, lower background and higher signal-to-noise ratios.
  • Uses fluorescein filter sets.
  • Available in 1 mL or affordable 0.5 mL sizes.

Left: Structure of Alexa Fluor® 488 and Nanogold® - Fab', showing covalent attachment of components.

Right: Fluorescent staining obtained using combined combined Alexa Fluor® 488 and Nanogold® - Fab' tertiary probe. The specimen is a slide from the NOVA Lite ANA HEp-2 test, an indirect immunofluorescent test system for the screening and semi-quantitative determination of anti-nuclear antibodies (ANA) in human serum (see ). The slide was stained using positive pattern control human sera, a Mouse anti-Human secondary antiboidy, and combined Alexa Fluor® 488 and Nanogold® - Fab' tertiary probe. Specimens were washed with PBS (30 minutes) between each step, then blocked by the addition of 7 % nonfat dried milk to the tertiary antibody solution (original magnification 400 X).

[Alexa Fluor® 594 Labeling (64k)]

Localization of caveolin-1a in ultrathin cryosection of human placenta using a new FNG; caveolin 1 alpha is primarily located to caveolae in placental endothelial cells. One-to-one correspondence is found between fluorescent spots and caveola labeled with gold particles (right). Ultrathin cryosections collected on formvar film-coated nickel EM grids were incubated with chicken anti-human caveolin-1a IgY for 30 min at 37°C, then with biotinylated goat anti-chicken F(ab)2 (13 mg/ml) for 30 min at 37°C, then stained with ALEXA-594 FluoroNanogold™-Streptavidin (1:50 dilution) for 30 min at room temperature. Non-specific sites on cryosections were blocked with 1% milk - 5% fetal bovine serum-PBS for 30 minutes at room temperature (figure courtesy of T. Takizawa, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH).
