Paper Abstract

We describe a wide-field preclinical imaging system optimized for time-gated detection of quantum dot fluorescence emission. As compared to continuous wave measurements, image contrast was substantially improved by suppression of short-lifetime background autofluorescence. Real-time (8 frames/s) biological imaging of subcutaneous quantum dot injections is demonstrated simultaneously in multiple living mice.
