量子点生物探针活体成像Quantum Dots Biological Probes In Vivo Imaging



Quantum dots (QDs), three-dimensional (3-D) nanocrystals, possess a great deal of unique optical performances, such as wide excitation wavelength, narrow and symmetric emission wavelength, high quantum yield, long fluorescence lifespan, stable optical property. QDs can be used as fluorescent probes to label different components in biosystem, which contains tissues, cells, molecules and living animals imaging. A review on the advances of QDs as fluorescent probes in Biological and Medical fields is given in the paper.
