A technique for labeling of live human cancer cells is presented. The imaging technique employs semiconductor quantum rods of CdSe/CdS/ZnS for multiplex labeling. The technique is further used to diagnose human pancreatic cancer by conjugating QRs with monoclonal antibodies (anti-Claudin 4 and anti-mesothelin).
