The combination of semi-conductor Quantum Dots (QDs) and FLIM microscopy presents countless advantages for intra-cellular imaging. With these advantages in mind, we have been working in several nanosenors in the last few years.
Our latest work on intracellular nanosensors, specifically designed for FLIM microscopy, targeting glucose is now published in the journal Sensors (19, 4992). Click on the image to access the paper:
But we have been also working in aggregation-induced luminescent materials, that could be used in bioimaging. In another manuscript, published recently in the same journal Sensors (19, 4932), we have explored this effect in a new dye, in collaboration with the group of Prof. Ramon Rios (University of Southampton, UK).
