using of quantum dots for live cell imaging

To monitor interactions within and among cells as they grow and differentiate has been a great challenge and a kye to unndrestand organismal development. Fluorescent microspcopy is widely used for these type of studies but it has its own limitations.

Fluorescent quantum dots (QDs) are inorganic fluorescent nanocrystals that overcome many of these limitations. Has anyone used this technology before?

I have used Qdot western detection technology for proteomic application from a company called: Quantom Dot Corporation (QCD) in California and I was very happy with it. Their western blot detection kit has a sensitivity to picogram levels of protein using several existing gel imaging system.
I used the western blot kit containing Qdot 565 nm goat anti-mouse conjugate and Qdot 655 nm goat anti-rabbit conjugate.
