CNBP researcher Nima Sayyadi is first author on a recently published paper titled, ‘A novel biocompatible europium chelate for sensitive time-gated immunodetection.’

The paper was published in the journal Chemical Communications.

Abstract: We describe the synthesis of a novel hydrophilic derivative of a tetradentate β-diketone europium chelate that was used to prepare an immunoconjugate probe against Giardia lamblia cysts. We used a Gated Autosynchronous Luminescence Detector (GALD) to obtain high quality delayed luminescence images of cells 30-fold faster than ever previously reported.
