Quantum Dots: Biological Applications is the first book published on the subject, and it emphasizes a variety of methods that were developed using commercially available materials. Each of the protocols in this authoritative, cutting-edge text have been prepared and written by the developers of novel applications for quantum dots, many of whom have published the initial reports on the subject in major journals. This comprehensive volume outlines nearly all currently developed applications of quantum dots in precise detail. The protocols will be of tremendous interest to experimental biologists, as they examine current and potential applications of quantum dot labeling in the field. Cutting-edge examples of potential biological applications for quantum dots include cancer detection, live cell tracking, and pathology. This volume provides an excellent reference for protocols that can be utilized repeatedly to yield reliable performance from quantum dot-enabled applications.
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."
