DiI labelled human low densitiy lipoprotein has been used for monitoring Ac-LDL uptake by monocytes/ macrophages in conjunction with excess unlabelled Ac-LDL 5685-3404 (Rahman et al. 2008).

Sample lots of DiI labeled human low density lipoprotein are individually evaluated for the labeling of human skin fibroblasts or P-388D cells grown in lipoprotein deficient medium for 48 hours.
