The cationic carbocyanine DiIC1(5) can be used as a slow-response potential-sensitive probe. This dye accumulates on hyperpolarized membranes and is translocated into the lipid bilyaer. Aggregation within the confined membrane interior usually results in decreased fluorescence and absorption shifts. This far red-fluorescent dye exhibits excitation/emission maxima of ~638/658 nm.
