DiO, also called DiOC18(3), is a green fluorescent, lipophilic carbocyanine dye. DiO’s excitation max is 484 nm, and emission max is 501 nm.

DiO is widely used as an anterograde and retrograde neuronal tracer in living and fixed tissues and cells. DiO uniformly labels neurons via diffusion in the plasma membrane. In intact tissue, the dye does not transfer from labeled to unlabeled cells but some transfer may occur when the membrane is disrupted, for example after sectioning.

DiO and DiI are often used together in dual-color studies. But DiO has a slower lateral diffusion rate on the membranes than that of DiI.
