Home / About Ion Indicators

Ion Indicators is a global leader in ion indicators due to the unique expertise of its founder, Dr. Akwasi Minta. Dr. Minta was a member of Dr. Roger Tsien’s small team of pioneers in the early 1980s that introduced the fluorescent ion indicators Fura -2, SBFI, PBFI, Fluo-2, and Fluo-3. Dr. Minta commercialized these indicators at Molecular Probes and Ion Indicators, and expanded their repertoire by introducing indicators for zinc, chloride, and other analytes. We are focused on producing a new generation of enhanced ion indicators.

Ion Indicators is wholly dedicated to the continued creation of the best fluorescent ion indicators.
