Protein Fluorescent NanoParticles (GlowDots)

(Alternatives to Quantum Dots)

Nanoparticles made from ordinary protein, serum albumin, were labeled with three different fluorescent dyes so that each particle emits white light when excited with UV or near visible light. These are one of a kind in the world because quantum dots can not produce white emission, under ordinary conditions.  Because QD emission color depends on their size, a single size can not produce red, green and blue colors, simultaneously.  Hence, GlowDots are unique white-emitting particles with a tight control over their size.
