High throughput near infrared screening discovers DNA-templated silver clusters with peak fluorescence beyond 950 nm.

A new interesting article has been published in Nanoscale. 2018 Oct 23. doi: 10.1039/c8nr05781h. [Epub ahead of print] and titled:

A summary of the article is shown below:

We use high throughput near-infrared (NIR) screening technology to discover abundant new DNA-stabilized silver clusters, AgN-DNA, that fluoresce in the NIR. These include the longest wavelength AgN-DNA fluorophores identified to date, with peak emission beyond 950 nm that extends into the NIR II tissue transparency window, and the highest silver content.
