Due to the high market cost of metallic based QDs, and the high toxicity level of inorganic metallic based QDs, QD industrial use has been slow and limited to high-end optoelectronic application or applications that require only low concentrations (few g/L) of QDs, such as in-vitro bio-imaging or molecular tracking in live cells. This severely limits the current use of dots in the Bio-Imaging market.
The Solution: ValiDotz™ are non-toxic, molecular-sized discs that have unique optical and physical properties, which make them excellent candidates for medical imaging and sensing. The stable photo luminesces and low toxicity of ValiDotz™ make them a perfect candidate for bio-imaging, biosensors, drug delivery, and medical diagnosis.
In bio-imaging, ValiDotz™ can be used in various in-vivo and in-vitro imaging, sensing and labelling techniques.
For example – ValiDotz™ can be used to target cancer cells, tumors and other bio imaging anomalies.
ValiDotz™, like metallic based QDs, exhibit exceptional photoluminescence properties (i.e. they emit visible light when exposed to UV energy) which can be tuned and adjusted, while their carbon-based structure makes them biocompatible and photo stable.
