Fluorescence and the World it has Opened | Microscopy Services Laboratory (MSL)A fluorophore or fluorochrome , similarly to a chromophore is a fluorescent chemical compound that can re-emit light upon light excitation. Fluorophores are sometimes used alone, as a tracer in fluids, as a dye for staining of certain structures, as a substrate of enzymes , or as a probe or indicator when its fluorescence is affected by environmental aspects such as polarity or ions. More generally they are covalently bonded to a macromolecule , serving as a marker or dye, or tag, or reporter for affine or bioactive reagents antibodies , peptides, nucleic acids. Fluorophores are notably used to stain tissues, cells, or materials in a variety of analytical methods, i. Fluorescein , by its amine reactive isothiocyanate derivative fluorescein isothiocyanate , has been one of the most popular fluorophores.
