Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Photostable, highest emission QD fluorochromes are introduced for enzyme-organelle studies in nanocompartments of living cells. Progress towards intracellular localizations is foreseeable using high-resolution digital photography applied to genomics, proteomics, diagnostics-prognostics, and drug trials.
