Abstract

Nanotechnology is a multidisciplinary science that includes scientific and technological activities in the nanometer scale, which includes materials with length between 1 and 100 nm in at least one dimension. Quantum dots are nanoparticles capable to emitting light in the visible region, when excited with electromagnetic radiation of higher energy than the emitted. Quantum dots have wide applicability, more specifically carbon quantum dots (C-dots), which besides the traditional inorganic QDs properties, such as luminescence dependent of the size and wavelength, photodegradation resistance and easy bioconjugation, the C-dots have no intrinsic toxicity, which facilitates application in biological samples, and they are consistent with the philosophy of Green Chemistry. The biocompatibility of C-dots is of great interest for application in clinical analysis, as the dosage of various analytes like glucose, uric acid, creatinine, lactate, among others, provide important information such as renal function, cardiac disease and diabetes. In addition, with the use of microfluidic devices on paper are developed fast test, accurate, easy to use, sensitive, using reagent and sample volumes reduced and deliverable to those who need them, which is consistent with that proposed by the World Health Organization. In this way, the development of µPAD for simultaneous determination of clinical interest compounds using the same fluorescent reagent consisting of carbon quantum dots will be studied.
