Description

"Quantum Dots" captures many diverse applications enabling utility in biological detection. Organized into five parts, the first two parts cover the use of QDs in imaging fixed and living cells (and tissues). Protocols are included for using QDs in routine (protein and structural cellular labeling), as well as enabling (single receptor trafficking, clinical pathology, correlative microscopy) applications. Part 3 shows early efforts aimed at using QDs in live animals. The final 2 parts demonstrate the versatility of QD technology in existing assay technology.show more

Review quote

From the reviews: "...provides an excellent reference for protocols that can be utlized repeatedly to yield reliable performance from quantum dot-enabled applications." -Anticancer Research 27, May 2007 "Bruschez and Holtz have compiled an extremely useful set of applications and protocols in Quantum Dots, Applications in Biology. The protocols, written by the many leaders in QD imaging, cover a wide range of applications and provide detailed methodology for each application supported by excellent illustrations. This book certainly belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in biological imaging. ... in summary, this illustrative compilation of well-written protocols on QD is a must have for both the expert and novice interested in biological imaging." (Neel Ghosh, ChemBioChem, Issue 9, 2008)show more
