Fluorescent Colloidal Nanomaterial Rapidly Internalized into Living Cells

2147509719_155x140Researchers have successfully incorporated colloidal nanoplatelets, a disc-like variation on spherical quantum dots, in a biological system. The new “lipoprotein nanoplatelets” were found to be rapidly internalized into living cells while retaining their fluorescence, making them uniquely valuable in live-cell imaging and labelling.  Read more at Materials 360 Online…
