Point-of-care test developed for tumor marker in human saliva based on lanthanide nanoprobes

Schematic illustration of CEA detection in saliva. Eu2O3 NCs and disposable syringe filter equipped with nitrocellulose membrane are employed as nanoprobes and bioassay platform, respectively. The whole assay can be carried out within 10 min, including incubation, labeling, and washing procedures, which allows both quantitatively time‐resolved (TR) and qualitatively visual detection of CEA.Advanced Science (2021).

Lanthanide nanocrystals brighten molecular triplet excitons

Figure shows a schematic illustration of a lanthanide-doped nanoparticle couped with an organic semiconductor. The research findings by the team provide a new way to control triplet excitons, which is important for optoelectronic research.
