Discs with a cyanine dye
reflective layer have a shorter lifespan than discs using phthalocyanine-based dye.
Although information is less accessible regarding the dye type used in DVD recordable media, it is believed that DVD-R media use a modified form of stabilized Cyanine dye
for the recording layer.
Semicoductor laser-induced fluoresence detection in capillary electrophoresis using a cyanine dye
To achieve the optimum recording layer for DVD-R, TDK has modified the metal-stabilized cyanine dye
used in its CD-R discs.
2) Study the photo-physical properties at the ensemble and single-molecule level of a new material, CyDNA (DNA highly substituted with cyanine dyes
in a controllable way).
Inhibitory effects of pentamethine trinuclear cyanine dyes
In collaboration with Idaho Technology, we synthesized and characterized >30 asymmetric cyanine dyes
BDS developed the cyanine dyes
that have become a standard fluorescent tag in numerous markets in the biotechnology industry (acquired by Amersham Biosciences in 1996), while Cellomics, Inc.
for Solar Cells and Optical Data Storage.
About Molecular Probes' reactive nucleic acid stains: Molecular Probes' reactive nucleic acid stains are chemically reactive versions of its highly successful substituted unsymmetrical cyanine dyes
, which include products such as SYBR(R) Green I and II gel stains, SYBR(R) Gold gel stain, PicoGreen(R) double-stranded DNA quantitation reagent, RiboGreen(R) RNA quantitation reagent, OliGreen(R) single-stranded DNA quantitation reagent, and others.
with high absorption cross section as donor chromophores in energy transfer.
Waggoner conducted much of the development work on these cyanine dyes
during his 11 years as a Professor at Carnegie Mellon University.
