General description

3,3′-Diethyloxacarbocyanine iodide(DiOC) is a cyanine based dye which is used in the photosensitization of mitochondria and endoplastic recticulum in animals and plant cells.

Application

DiOC may be used as a conjugate for labelling cells for cytofluorometry studies . It may also be used in the imaging of carbon nanotubes(CNTs) using fluorescence microscopy. Staining of spermatozoa can potentially be done by DiOC which can be used in flow cytometric measurement and viability assay.
