Abstract

The long wavelength (far-red to NIR) analyte-responsive fluorescent probes are advantageous for in vivo bioimaging because of minimum photo-damage to biological samples, deep tissue penetration, and minimum interference from background auto-fluorescence by biomolecules in the living systems. Thus, great interest in the development of new long wavelength analyte-responsive fluorescent probes has emerged in recent years. This review highlights the advances in the development of far-red to NIR fluorescent probes since 2000, and the probes are classified according to their organic dye platforms into various categories, including cyanines, rhodamine analogues, BODIPYs, squaraines, and other types (240 references).
