A highly sensitive, selective, colorimetric and near-infrared fluorescent turn-on chemosensor for Cu(2+) based on BODIPY.
Summary of "A highly sensitive, selective, colorimetric and near-infrared fluorescent turn-on chemosensor for Cu(2+) based on BODIPY."
A new colorimetric and NIR fluorescent chemosensor (1) for Cu(2+) based on BODIPY is reported, displaying a highly sensitive and selective fluorescent enhancement with Cu(2+) among various metal ions, upon excitation at 620 nm in CH(3)CN.

Voltage-sensitive Dye Imaging
Optical imaging techniques used for recording patterns of electrical activity in tissues by monitoring transmembrane potentials via FLUORESCENCE imaging with voltage-sensitive fluorescent dyes.
Green Fluorescent Proteins
Protein analogs and derivatives of the Aequorea victoria green fluorescent protein that emit light (FLUORESCENCE) when excited with ULTRAVIOLET RAYS. They are used in REPORTER GENES in doing GENETIC TECHNIQUES. Numerous mutants have been made to emit other colors or be sensitive to pH.
A highly-sensitive (in the picomolar range, which is 10,000-fold more sensitive than conventional electrophoresis) and efficient technique that allows separation of PROTEINS; NUCLEIC ACIDS; and CARBOHYDRATES. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
Measurement of the regional temperature of the body or an organ by infrared sensing devices, based on self-emanating infrared radiation.
That portion of the electromagnetic spectrum usually sensed as heat. Infrared wavelengths are longer than those of visible light, extending into the microwave frequencies. They are used therapeutically as heat, and also to warm food in restaurants.
A new probe for Cu(2+) based on the Cu(2+)- induced reversible ring-opening mechanism of the rhodamine spirolactam was described. It displayed a highly selective and sensitive "turn-on" fluorescent an...

A preliminary study to determine the use of far infrared radiation for the treatment of back pain
Cancer is the number one killer in Canada and in most countries of the world. The investigators' initial assessment indicates that far infrared radiation has the potential to cure cancer.
