Although scientists envision quantum dots in a variety of applications, the toxicity of their starting materials could limit their use, notes Ya-Ping Sun of Clemson University in South Carolina.
In addition, AIST successfully synthesized avidin- or biotin-conjugated quantum dots, and by combinig both quantum dot hybrid materials, dramatically enhanced the sensitivity of antibody-based detection of proteins.
Quantum dot density variation in the samples proved to be the largest source of uncertainty in the measurement.
