Analyzing nanoparticle levels in blood

Abstract:
With the race to develop nanoparticle-based therapeutics and imaging agents for cancer applications moving at full speed, a small but growing group of researchers is quietly developing the methods that are needed to fully characterize a wide variety of nanoscale materials and then detect and quantify their presence in blood and other human tissues. One such effort, headed by King Chan, Ph.D., of the National Cancer Institute, and Anil Patri, Ph.D., of the Nanotechnology Characterization Laboratory, has now developed a straightforward method for analyzing two types of fullerene nanoparticle.
