Fluorescent semiconductor nanocrystals in microscopy and flow cytometry

Abstract

Quantum dots nanocrystals (Qdots or QDs), consisting of a CdSe core with a ZnS shell, are a novel class of fluorochromes with significant advantages over traditional organic fluorochromes and fluorescent proteins. QDs have a large extinction coefficient, high photostability, wide absorption and narrow emission spectra, and large Stokes shifts. These… (More)
