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.
labeling reagents: sulfoindocyanine, succinimidyl esters.
To achieve the optimum recording layer for DVD-R, TDK has modified the metal-stabilized cyanine dye
used in its CD-R discs.
The fluorophores for NIR imaging had been typically limited to the general class of cyanine dyes
such as indocyanine green.
My recent work has shown that PALM-like imaging of DNA can achieve a spatial resolution below 40 nm by using intercalating cyanine dyes
in combination with a buffer that promotes photo-blinking.
To assess the stability of the cyanine dyes
relative to the instrument stability, a homogeneous fluorescent material, SRM 2242, was incorporated into the study.
2002) and artificial pigment cyanine dyes

Wu, now at Stanford University Medical School, investigated cyanine dyes
, a class of light-sensitive compounds used in photography.
The intercalating dye ethidium bromide, which had been used to demonstrate the concept of real-time PCR, was soon replaced with asymmetric cyanine dyes
that were less inhibitory to the PCR (6).
In collaboration with Idaho Technology, we synthesized and characterized >30 asymmetric cyanine dyes
for Solar Cells and Optical Data Storage.
