The GFR-Vivo 680 imaging agent from PerkinElmer is a fluorescent agent that allows researchers to measure glomerular filtration rate (GFR) non-invasively, in vivo in animals. GFR-Vivo 680, in combination with Fluorescence Molecular Tomography (FMT) imaging, provides a non-invasive approach to generate consistent GFR measurements in animal models of kidney disease, dysfunction, and drug toxicity. GFR is the leading standard for measuring kidney function and is used to determine progression of kidney disease as well as drug-induced kidney toxicity. This agent allows researchers to get an accurate read out of GFR in vivo without the need for blood or urine sampling or labor intensive microplate assays. This fluorescent imaging agent is well-suited for researchers studying in vivo toxicology or drug safety assessment.
