Near Infrared Fluorescent Dyes – For In Vivo Imaging

Near-infrared (near-IR) dyes offer important advantages over traditional visible light dyes. Because cellular or tissue components produce minimal autofluorescence in the near-IR region, near-IR dyes have the potential to offer highly specific and sensitive detection in complex biological systems. Light with wavelength in the near-IR region has strong tissue penetration, allowing the use of near-IR dyes for in vivo fluorescence imaging.

Indocyanine Green [ICG]

CDX-I0013 100 mg | 500 mg

ICG is an in vivo molecular imaging probe. The infrared fluorescence emission penetrates tissues several millimeters to facilitate deep tissue and small animal in vivo imaging. ICG is used in medical diagnostics and for cancer cell and tumor targeting.
