Abstract
A direct spatial and spectral observation of CdSe and CdSe/CdS quantum dots (QDs) as probes in live cells is performed by using a custom molecular hyperspectral imaging (MHI) system. Water-soluble CdSe and CdSe/CdS QDs are synthesized in aqueous solution under the assistance of high-intensity ultrasonic irradiation and incubated with colon cancer cells for bioimaging. Unlike the traditional fluorescence microscopy methods, MHI technology can identify QD probes according to their spectral signatures and generate coexpression and stain titer maps by a clustering method. The experimental results show that the MHI method has potential to unmix biomarkers by their spectral information, which opens up a pathway of optical multiplexing with many different QD probes.
