Sudan III is predominantly used for staining triglycerides in animal tissues (frozen sections). Sudan dyes are a group of lipid soluble solvent dyes often called lysochromes, in structural classification they are diazo dyes. With the use of certain solvents, may also be used to stain some protein bound lipids in paraffin sections. Sudan I (sc-215922), Sudan III (sc-203761), and Sudan IV (sc-203762) have been classified as category 3 carcinogens by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
