Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Quantum dots are of considerable interest as highly detectable labels with broad absorption, narrow spectral emission and good quantum yields. The luminescence emission has a longer decay time than that of the most common fluorophores, leading to facile rejection of much background emission (such as autofluorescence from biological samples) by means of gated detection. Here, it is shown that a new technique, true-colour nanosecond time-gated luminescence imaging, can be used for selective detection of quantum dot luminescence and should prove valuable for multiplexed detection on the basis of both spectral emission profile and luminescence decay time.
