What Are BioDotz™ ?
BioDotz are the most recent addition to the Dotz family of unique markers.
This market-specific solution was developed to adress the tagging challenges
in the Bio-Imaging, Agriculture (e.g. seeds, plans etc.) and Food sectors.
Like ValiDotz, it is also an end-to-end solution composed of markers and customized detectors.
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.
