Efforts to develop carbon nanotubes as nano-vehicles for precise and controlled drug and gene delivery are hampered by uncertainties regarding their cellular uptake, fate and safety. Here, it is shown that, under standard transfection methods, nanotubes are taken up by cultured cells and then released after 24 h with no discernable stress response.
