Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PAR-99-103
Budget: 03/01/02 - 02/28/03

This proposal describes the development of semi-conductor nanocrystals (quantum dots) as probes for the specific detection of multiple markers of breast cell transformation simultaneously. Quantum dots are novel luminescent probes that are photo-stable, easily multiplexed and can be sensitively detected with simple, inexpensive optical systems. ...

Budget: 08/04/00 - 01/01/02

We propose to use a new luminescent material, called quantum dots, to extend the detection sensitivity of gene expression microarrays by almost 3 orders of magnitude. Fluorescence from single quantum dots can easily be detected using simple instrumentation. By using quantum dot labels in expression assays, we aim to detect the presence of indivi...
