Abstract

A new glucose sensing system based on near infra-red fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) from CocanavalinA-allophycocyanin to dextran labelled malachite green is demonstrated. Single-photon timing fluorescence lifetime measurements have enabled us to investigate and understand the quenching kinetics in terms of the dimensionality of energy transfer.
