Labels, conjugates

BioPhotonics
Feb 2007
EvidentTech.jpgAvailable from Evident Technologies Inc., the “Life Sciences Catalog V9” details quantum dot fluorescent labels and conjugates for research in the life sciences. The first part of the 24-page downloadable document is devoted to the EviTags Type 2-MP bioactivated quantum dot fluorescent labels. Along with an overview of the technology, it presents the features and benefits of the labels, and their optical properties, specifications, concentrations, conjugation protocols and environmental conditions. The second part describes EviFluors, activated quantum dots that are conjugated to proteins or secondary antibodies. It discusses the advantages of the probes over organic dye-based fluorophores, and it details blocking buffers, and absorption and emission spectra.



GLOSSARY
quantum dots
Also known as QDs. Nanocrystals of semiconductor materials that fluoresce when excited by external light sources, primarily in narrow visible and near-infrared regions; they are commonly used as alternatives to organic dyes.
