Nanoluminous Crystals Hold Promise for Development of New Bioimaging Technologies

Nanoluminous Crystals Hold Promise for Development of New Bioimaging Technologies

Researchers at UMass Medical School (UMMS) have successfully developed light-emitting nanocrystals that could help advance non-invasive bioimaging technologies. These nanocrystals would enable utilization of persistent luminescence nanoparticles for bioimaging applications in the clinic, and in research laboratories. This would allow functional and structural biological processes in patients and in living animals to be evaluated. [More]
