Detectability of QD-encoded polyelectrolyte microcapsules by flow cytometry: a microcapsule dot-plot profile in SSC-PE channels; b microcapsule distribution histogram in PE channel; c microcapsule dot-plot profile in SSC-FSC channels; d microcapsule distribution histogram in FSC channel. QD-free microcapsules (placebo) were used as a control and are shown in gray, whereas those encoded with CdSe/ZnS quantum dots (fluorescence emission maximum at 590 nm) are shown in orange. The number of analyzed events was equal to 2500. The dot-plots and histogram axes are shown as SSC-A, FSC-A, PE-A, where A means the data are represented by signal area
