Quantum dot technology to advance molecular cell imaging

Researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign bioengineering team and Mayo Clinic have engineered a new type of molecular probe that can measure and count RNA in cells and tissue without organic dyes. The probe is based on the conventional fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) technique, but it relies on compact quantum dots to …

New approach to targeted fluorescent imaging in cancer diagnosis provides improved results

Tumor detection using targeted fluorescent imaging probes is a promising technology that takes advantage of specific molecular events occurring in cancer tissues. However, currently available probes that use this technology fail to maximize their specificity for tumors because of strong off-target signals, and thus, have limited ability to detect small tumors in a short timespan …
