fluorescein sodium

(floor″es′ē-ĭn, floo″ŏr-) [ fluoresce + -in]
An orange-colored vegetable dye used to examine the eye. Topically, it is used to make visible defects in the corneal epithelium, such as those seen in dry eyes and corneal abrasions and ulcers. Intravenously injected fluorescein is used in retinal angiography to diagnose vascular leakage in the retina.

Variation of velocity with travel path of uranin plume
2, the travel time of the uranin plume increases with increasing travel path of the plume at an increasing rate due to nonlinear sorption of uranin with the aquifer materials.

Figure 5 depicts a fundamental difference between the velocity of the uranin plume calculated by power law relation (Eqn 22) and that determined by the ratio of travel path to the first time moment, [tau] (Eqn 16).
