Encapsulated Polymer Nanoparticles Shine Brightly

Abstract:
In just a few short years, semiconductor quantum dots have become a mainstay of cancer researchers. Their small size and extremely bright fluorescence, or optical brightness, makes them ideal molecular tracers for nearly any study aimed at tracking the behavior of biomolecules in living cells and even organisms.
