Abstract

The use of nanoparticles in biology, especially in cellular imaging, is extremely promising and offers numerous advantages over existing organic dye systems. There are, however, constraints that need to be addressed before the use of such materials in mainstream clinical applications can be realized. One of the main concerns is the use of metal-containing particles that are potentially toxic or interfere with other diagnostic processes. Here, we present the use of simple conjugated polymer nanoparticles as alternative photostable cellular optical imaging agents.
