Ratiometric sensing of toxins using quantum dots

Botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT) presents a significant hazard under numerous realistic scenarios. BoNT is the most toxic substance known. Current tests for BoNT are slow (2 days), lab-based, and complex. A new scheme offers quick, specific quantification by non-specialized personnel such as first responders in the field.
