Two Labels Double Versatility of Nanoparticles for Tracking Cells

Abstract:
Writing in the journal Bioconjugate Chemistry, a research team headed by Samira Guccione, Ph.D., at Stanford University, detailed its method for preparing nanoparticles containing both gadolinium and rhodamine on their surface. The polymer nanoparticles, 85 nanometers in diameter, were readily and rapidly taken up by breast cancer cells growing in tissue culture and had no apparent impact on the viability or behavior of the labeled cells.
