Nowadays molecular fluorescent probes are widely used in many fields of science, primarily in biology, medicine and biotechnology. Particular emphasis on the development of technologies to cancer cells diagnosis and detection of genetic mutations led to numerous modification of luminescent fluorophores, which has resulted in a wide range of such compounds. Scientists from around the world are continuously trying to experience the mechanism of cells function and metabolic pathways. Certainly, it is affected by the fact that any analytical techniques using fluorescence operate easily and nondestructively. A phenomenon of fluorescence is observable by chromophore which absorbs energy at a certain wavelength and is able to emit electromagnetic radiation at another wavelength.
