abstract

  • Luminescent quantum dots(QDs) are a promising alternative to organic dyes for biomedical assays and imaging. A new conjugation method, NHS mediated conjugating, for QDs and BSA was introduced. The QDs-BSA conjugates were confirmed, and their stability has been proved. Caenorhabditis elegans(C. elegans) were used as animal models, and the imaging of QDs in the organism was studied.
