Application

Dextran labeled with fluorescein isothiocyanate for possible use in perfusion studies in animals.
Fluorescein isothiocyanate–dextran (FITC-Dextran 70) is use as a fluorescent probe to study cell processes such as cell permeability, phagocytosis and endocytosis and to study mechanisms of biomolecular delivery. FITC-Dextran 70 may be used to study the capacity, selectivity and efficiency of encapsulation and release by drug delivery vehicles.
