Rice rolls out new nanocars
...and the dots that move are winners. The ones that don't are either fluorescing molecules sitting by themselves or nanocars stuck in park.
The dye tetramethylrhodamine
isothiocyanate had the added attraction of emitting a polarized signal. Since dye molecules tended to line up with the chassis, the researchers could...
Measurement of Molecular Beacons in the SpectraMax Gemini Spectrofluorometer (MaxLine Application Note #36)
...f their emission spectra do not overlap, detection of one in the presence of the other is straightforward. Such is the case for fluorescein (FAM)- and tetramethylrhodamine
(TAMRA)-labelled probes. Using the instrument settings intended for FAM, the TAMRA probe/ target complex does not interfere with the FAM signal (
