FLIVO® (FLuorescence in vIVO) is a powerful method for non-invasive detection of caspase activity in vivo. NIR-FLIVO® 690 Tracers are non-cytotoxic, cell-permeant fluorescent inhibitors of caspases optimized for use in whole live animals. The NIR-FLIVO 690 Tracer probe contains the preferred binding sequence for most caspases (Val-Ala-Asp or VAD). This preferred poly caspase tripeptide binding sequence is labeled with *Dylight® 690 dye and a fluoromethyl ketone (FMK) reactive entity.
