A key factor in the success of using laser scanning confocal microscopy to image molecular systems such as fluorescent microspheres, is the requirement for the microspheres to have a high intensity of florescence whilst having a high photobleaching resistance. In this work, a number of straightforward and reliable synthetic procedures to prepare silica and PMMA microspheres using quantum dots as the fluorescent material are described. Experimental data reveals that quantum dots perform as an excellent fluorophore, showing significantly greater photobleaching resistance as compared to organic dye.
