Fluorescent and Magnetic

MagDots combine the enduring signal of MultiDots with superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPION) for sophisticated multimodal analyses. MagDots bring fluorescence and magnetism together at last.

Constant Signal

Thumbnail: Cover of Nano Letters 2010The MultiDot format ensures there is a constant signal, even when individual dots within the polymer blink. This allows you to follow a target’s trajectory without drawing dotted lines. The MultiDot’s alternating color also helps microscopists determine when targets are leaving the focal plane or when they aggregate with other targets.
