Ambidextrous nature of QDs in nanomedicine. Theranostics is particularly useful to establish specific or molecular targeting in a single agent (QDs). A range of fluorescent semi-conducting nanocrystals can acts as theranostic agent. Because of its ability to accommodate various functional modalities either targeting agents (antibody, aptamer or protein) or cell-penetrating ligands can be incorporated into QDs for cancer therapy or diagnosis
