Chemical Name: Sodium 4-(2-((1E,3E,5E,7Z)-7-(1,1-Dimethyl-3-(4-sulfonatobutyl)-1,3-dihydro-2H-benzo[e]indol-2-ylidene)hepta-1,3,5-trien-1-yl)-1,1-dimethyl-1H-benzo[e]indol-3-ium-3-yl)butane-1-sulfonate
Biological ActivityIndocyanine green is a near infrared (NIR) fluorescent dye operating in the 700-900 nm wavelength range. It also exhibits fluorescence emission in the shortwave infrared window (SWIR; 1,000-2,000 nm) which enables in vivo imaging, including intravital microscopy, non-invasive real-time imaging in blood and lymph vessels, and imaging of hepatobiliary clearance. Imaging of indocyanine green in SWIR shows increased sensitivity, contrast, and resolution of fine anatomical structures over NIR.
