What is Uranine/Fluoroscein?

Fluorescein is an orange-red powdered compound, molecular formula C20H12O5, that exhibits intense greenish-yellow fluorescence in alkaline solution and is used in medicine for diagnostic purposes, in ophthalmology to reveal corneal lesions, and as a textile dye. The water soluble form of fluorescein is used in oceanography as a tracer. (Sources: The Free Dictionary – Fluorescein andThe Medical Free Dictionary – Fluorescein). Further,

Fluorescein is a fluorophore commonly used in microscopy, in a type of dye laser as the gain medium, and in forensics and serology to detect latent blood stains. Fluorescein has an absorption maximum at 494 nm and emission maximum of 521 nm (in water). … Fluorescein also has an isosbestic point (equal absorption for all pH values) at 460 nm.”
(Source: Wikipedia, 2010, Fluorescein).
