Project description

quantum dots are inorganic luminescent nanocrystals, exhibiting intense stable size-dependent luminescence. this allows simultaneous excitation of different particles at single wavelength wiht emission at multiple wavelengths. in the case of mycotoxin's detection it is imporant to define several toxicants simultaneously in one sample at low concentration. Quantum dot-based immunochemical rapid tests for sensitive simultaneous mycotoxins detection will ben developed
