Luminescent semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) conjugated with biomolecules to serve as sensitive probes for early detection of the cancer cells, specifically for ovarian cancer and lung cancer, which represents the most lethal malignancies. The luminescence characterization of the bin-conjugated QDs with cancer specific antigens using linkage molecules. Photo-enhancement is measured at various laser density power, temperatures and laser wavelengths.
