Application Many applications of hyaluronan have appeared over the past years both in medicine (particularly its indispensable contribution to eye surgery) and in cosmetics. Fluorescein-labelled hyaluronic acid may be used as a probe for following the fate of hyaluronan in vitro. A FITC-labelled hyaluronic preparation greatly enhanced the visualisation of the permeation of the substrate through skin. Other applications of fluorescein labelled hyaluronic acid have appeared.
