Quantum dot brightness improves imaging

10/5/2015

Phys.Org (Oct. 5) -- Researchers, lead by BioE assistant professor Andrew Smith, have introduced a new class of light-emitting quantum dots (QDs) with tunable and equalized fluorescence brightness across a broad range of colors. This results in more accurate measurements of molecules in diseased tissue and improved quantitative imaging capabilities. Also: ScienceBlog (Oct. 5), AzoNano (Oct. 6).
