Next generation of cellular imaging and labeling approaches using Light-Emitting Transition Metal Dichalcogenide Monolayers

Penn State inventors have developed an atomically-thin material with strong light-emitting properties to label and image living organisms, including, cancer cells, bacteria, and viruses, which have been shown to dramatically improve existing agents for cellular labeling and imaging with a stronger fluorescence and better biocompatibility. next generation of cellular imaging and labeling approaches, from monitoring transmissions of infectious diseases to imaging cancer metastasis. -Mauricio Terrones
