ConspectusThe necessity to scrutinize more and more biological molecules and interactions both in solution and on the cellular level has led to an increasing demand for sensitive and specific multiplexed diagnostic analysis. Photoluminescence (PL) detection is ideally suited for multiplexed biosensing and bioimaging because it is rapid and sensitive and there is an almost unlimited choice of fluorophores that provide a large versatility of photophysical properties, including PL intensities…

A Dendrimer-Based Time-Gated Concentric FRET Configuration for Multiplexed Sensing.

Dendrimers labeled with a luminescent terbium complex (Tb) are a viable and advantageous alternative platform for cFRET probes and are an important step toward a new generation of probes for biological sensing.



Three-Dimensional FRET Multiplexing for DNA Quantification with Attomolar Detection Limits.

Time-gated Förster resonance energy transfer from a long-lifetime Tb complex to Cy3.5 and Cy5.5 dyes for spectrotemporal multiplexing of four different DNA targets in the same sample by single-color excitation and two-color detection is demonstrated.

Multiplexed Nucleic Acid Hybridization Assays Using Single-FRET-Pair Distance-Tuning.

Time-gated (TG) detection of a single terbium-donor-based Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) pair can be used to selectively quantify low nanomolar concentrations of multiple DNAs or microRNAs in a single sample.

Six-color time-resolved Förster resonance energy transfer for ultrasensitive multiplexed biosensing.

The multiplexed FRET biosensor offers clinically relevant detection limits in the low picomolar concentration range for all five markers, thus providing an effective early screening tool for lung cancer with the possibility of distinguishing small-cell from non-small-cell lung carcinoma.

Time-Gated FRET Detection for Multiplexed Biosensing

Forster resonance energy transfer (FRET) has become an indispensable technique for biosensing in both microscopy and spectroscopy. FRET based on photoluminescence intensity and lifetime is both well

Ultrasensitive optical imaging with lanthanide lumiphores

A new lanthanide imaging modality, trans-reflected illumination with luminescence resonance energy transfer (trLRET), which increases the time-integrated signal intensities of Lanthanide lumiphores by 170-fold and the signal-to-background ratios by 75-fold, and promises to unlock the full potential of lanthanides lumipores for ultrasensitive, autofluorescence-free biological imaging.

FRET-Modulated Multihybrid Nanoparticles for Brightness-Equalized Single-Wavelength Barcoding.

A holistic photophysical analysis of such multidonor-QD-multiacceptor FRET systems using time-resolved and steady-state photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy and Monte Carlo simulations is provided.
