Carbocyanine dye

Name: Carbocyanine dye
Description: Family of cyanine dyes that have a bridge of three methine groups joining the two rings; inrelated cyanine, dicarbocyanine, and tricarbocyanine dyes, this bridge contains 1, 5, and 7 methine groups, respectively. Related dyes can have minor alterations in their ring structure with either an oxygen ("cliO") or a sulfur ("diS") instead of an isopropyl group ((which yields an indole ring and hence the abbreviation "diI').[1]
Has role: lipophilic tracing role, post mortem tract tracing role
