Dilinoleyl DiI



Product Description

Dilinoleyl DiI (1,1′-dilinoleyl-3,3,3′,3′-tetramethylindocarbocynanine perchlorate), also known as FAST DiI, has identical absorption and emission spectra as DiI (#60010) . Due to its unsaturated hydrocarbon chains, dilinoleyl DiI has a much faster lateral diffusion rate in cell membranes than DiI . This property makes dilinoleyl DiI particularly useful for tracing neurons in tissues.
