For special studies on membrane and cell properties, anionic (negative charge) groups have been introduced into FITC- dextran.
FITC-CM-dextrans are standard FITC-dextrans carrying carboxymethyl-substituents. The carboxymethyl(CM)-content (4-8%) corresponds to about 1 CM group for every 5 glucose units.
