Evident Technologies offers quantum dots free of heavy metals

May 23, 2005 — Evident Technologies of Troy, N.Y., introduced today a commercially available non-heavy-metal quantum dot product for life science research. “To our knowledge, these are the first commercially available bright, long-lasting, quantum dots that do not contain heavy metals,” said Clinton Ballinger, chief executive of Evident Technologies.

The new T2-MP EviTags are available in the deep red wavelengths used in life science research, and offer the possibility to create new classes of assays for use where current testing materials could produce cytotoxicity or cell death. Potential applications include in vivo imaging, including live cell and even whole animal imaging, blood cancer assays and other applications.
