Abstract
Time-gated fluorescence imaging of near-infrared emitting ZnCuInSe/ZnS quantum dots (QDs) with fluorescence lifetimes in the range of 150−300 ns enables the efficient rejection of fast autofluorescence photons and the selection of QD fluorescence photons. This leads to complete elimination of autofluorescence background and a significant increase of imaging sensitivity. We demonstrate efficient detection and imaging of individual QD-labeled lymphoma cells circulating at mm/s velocities in blood vessels. In a second application, these QDs were used as a sensing platform to detect enzymatic activity using a ratiometric time-gated sensing scheme.
