Yiyi has showed us the immunostaining protocol for PC12 cells. Immunostaining is a process that uses antibodies to tag proteins of interest in cells and tissues. We used a mouse tau antibody as the primary antibody to attach on to more »
This test was intended to show the difference in oxidation times between Dr. Ruan’s micelles and commercial quantum dots. Both slides were made by mounting and then drying the dots on a coverslip and then using water as a media. more »
Gang Ruan presented QSTORM research findings in a talk delivered today at Quantum Science Symposium 2011 in Cambridge, MA. Gang began his talk, “Quantum Dots for Single Molecule Tracking in Live Cells,” reviewing how the Ohio State research groups he works more »
Hi all, I am glad to announce that Yiyi has successfully passed her Ph.D. qualifier exam! Over the past few months, she had worked very hard to prepare for this exam, which usually has an attrition rate of ~20%. She more »
Hi Peter, We did a proof-of-concept experiment to see how much quenching effect on quantum dot (QD) we can get from gold nanoparticle close to QD. So far the most we got is ca. 70% decrease in fluorescence (see below, more »
We tested a technique this week that involved two different excitation sources. One was a 660 nm laser and the other a 405 nm LED. The idea being that the 405 would cause the yellow quantum dots to emit light more »
Peter – Would you like some more fish? We’d love to see the super-res Alexa some time. — Beth [via email]
In basic terms, these are spheres of quantum dots. This provides us a dense localized point source with many dots overlapping each other. Therefore, if we can use blinking to localized individual dots, we are proving our method of breaking more »
Quantum dots directly from typical organic solvent-based synthesis are not soluble in water. We developed a novel surface modification approach based on poly(styrene-co-ethylene glycol) (PS-PEG) micelle encapsulation (Ruan and Winter, Nano Letters 2010, 2011). The features of this approach include: more »
