Will Improved Quantum Dots Spur Use for Biological Analysis?

In the 1980s, Quantum Dots were highly promoted as the solution to single molecule detection for biological analysis. These nanocrystals have several advantages over organic dyes:   they are much brighter, and they are highly stable, so do not saturate or “bleach” with increasing excitation light intensity. Quantum Dots  have a relatively broad excitation curve (several hundreds … Continued
