2,3,5-Triphenyltetrazolium chloride is a colorless water-soluble dye. In the mitochondria of living cells, it is reduced to a deep red, water-insoluble compound (formazan). 2,3,5-Triphenyltetrazolium chloride helps to distinguish between viable and infarcted brain tissue after stroke.
2,3,5-Triphenyltetrazolium chloride has been used to stain heart tissue to measure the extent of acute lesion. It has also been used to stain brain tissue to check the size of infarct area.
Bromocresol Green (BCG) is a pH sensitive triphenylmethane dye useful in a variety of colorimetric detection technologies. BCG is used as a tracking dye for DNA agarose gel electrophoresis, in protein determinations and in charge-transfer complexation processes. In TLC BCG is used for visualisation of the compounds with functional groups whose pKa is below 5.0.
Bromothymol Blue (also known as bromothymol sulfone phthalein and BTB) is a pH indicator. It is mostly used in applications that require measuring substances that would have a relatively neutral pH (near 7). A common use is for measuring the presence of carbonic acid in a liquid. It is typically sold in solid form as the sodium salt of the acid indicator.
Cresol Red is used as a tracking dye in DNA, RNA (agarose) and protein (polyacrylamide) electrophoresis. In agarose, Cresol Red runs with an apparent molecular size of approx. 125 bp DNA. Cresol Red does not inhibit Taq polymerase. Recently Cresol Red has been used as a pH sensitive indicator dye in nanoengineered optical urea biosensors films and hetero-core structured fiber optic pH sensor.
Dithizone (Diphenylthiocarbazone) is used as chelating agent for zinc. It is widely used for the liquid-liquid and solid phase extraction of various metals since it forms stable complexes with the metals.
