Multifunctional Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles for Intracellular Labeling and Animal Magnetic Resonance Imaging Studies



original image

Light up your cells: Multifunctional mesoporous silica nanoparticles were successfully demonstrated to be excellent bimodal imaging probes for intracellular labeling and as in vivo magnetic resonance imaging contrast agents. These studies provide the basis for the use of mesoporous silica nanoparticles as diagnostic tools and therapeutic drug carriers.
