Light in the near-infrared (NIR) region between 700-900 nm can penetrate deep into living tissue, thereby offering a unique opportunity to use near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) imaging techniques to detect and visualize fluorescent probes in-vivo. In the past few years, many...

This article describes the design and preparation of a novel fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET)-based ratiometric sensor with the polymer nanoparticle as scaffold for detecting Hg(2+) in aqueous media. In this study, a fluorescent dye fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC, served as...

Probes to dye for: Rhodamine-inspired Si-pyronine, Si-rhodamine, Te-rhodamine, and Changsha NIR dyes have been developed recently. These dyes show fluorescence in the far-red to near-infrared region, while retaining the advantages of the original rhodamines, such as high fluorescence quantum yield...

Fluorophores are potentially useful for in vivo cancer diagnosis. Using relatively inexpensive and portable equipment, optical imaging with fluorophores permits real-time detection of cancer. However, fluorophores can be toxic and must be investigated before they can be administered safely to...

Polymeric nanoparticles have been widely applied to oral delivery of protein drugs, however, few studies focused on the systematical elucidation of the size-dependent oral absorption mechanism with well-defined polymeric nanoparticles. Rhodamine B labeled carboxylated chitosan grafted nanoparticles (RhB-CCNP) with different...

In vivo fluorescence imaging uses a sensitive camera to detect fluorescence emission from fluorophores in whole-body living small animals. To overcome the photon attenuation in living tissue, fluorophores with long emission at the near-infrared (NIR) region are generally preferred, including...
