Very bright quantum dot (QD)-based probes consisting of QDs on 120 nm silica nanoparticles with silica shells are investigated for effective bioimaging. Silica-coated, QD-embedded silica nanoparticles exhibit approximately 200-times stronger photoluminescence (PL) than single QDs. The more advanced version of QD-based silica nanoparticles containing multishell QDs can detect as few as 400 units of nanoparticle-internalized cells in a cell-implanted mouse model.
