Several fluorescent or luminescent organisms with biological, chemical, and ecological diversity have been proposed as substitutes for use in new imaging and diagnostic technologies. Inspired by these trends, we designed a synthetic fluorescent light-encoding particulate to serve as a novel and prospective cancer-diagnostic imaging platform. The fluorescence-emitting particulate was used practically for both in vitro and in vivo selective cancer diagnostic imaging.
