A small-molecule dye for NIR-II imaging

The paper entitled, "A small-molecule dye for NIR-II imaging," by Alexander L Antaris, et al. from the Cancer Molecular Imaging Chemistry Lab at MIPS and collaborators was published by Nature Materials. This work reports the first clinical translatable small molecule NIR-II fluorescent dye that can serve as a platform technology and be used in many applications, including in vivo molecular imaging, image-guided surgery and therapy, in vitro cell labelling, diagnosis, bioassays, etc.
