VIC is a fluorescent dye that was originally developed by Applied Biosystems (now, Thermofisher). VIC emits in the green-yellow part of the visible spectrum. It is used to fluorescently label oligonucleotides at the 5’-end (for use as probes in a variety of real-time PCR, hybridization, and fluorescence-based genetic analysis applications). VIC phosphoramidite is the most convenient building block to incorporate VIC tag into an oligonucleotide.
