Research Highlights Multi-Color Quantum Dot Tracking using a Hyperspectral Microscope Detects Protein Interactions below the Diffraction Limit

Multi-Color Quantum Dot Tracking

A UNM research group designed and built a novel high-speed hyperspectral microscope that can track 8 distinct species of fluorescent quantum dots labels at up to 30 frames per second. The microscope is now being used to measure the lifetime of protein-protein interactions in both normal cells and cells with mutated proteins that have been implicated in cancer.
