Carboxyfluorescein is either of two fluorescent dyes with an excitation and emission of 492/517 nm, respectively. A carboxyfluorescein molecule is a fluorescein molecule with a carboxyl group added. They are commonly used as a tracer agents. The dyes are membrane-impermeant and can be loaded into cells by microinjection or scrape loading. It can be incorporated into liposomes, and allow for the tracking of liposomes as they pass through the body. In addition, carboxyfluorescein has been used to track division of cells.
