In vitro immunotoxicity of hydrophobic sodium fluoride-based nanocrystals (NCs) doped with lanthanide ions was examined in this study. Although there is already a significant amount of optical and structural data on NaYF4 NCs, data on safety assessment are missing. Therefore, peripheral whole blood from human volunteers was used to evaluate the effect of 25(More)
The purely hexagonal phase of ultrasmall (~10 nm) NaYF(4) nanocrystals (NCs), containing different Eu concentrations, has been obtained by a modified co-thermolysis method. Detailed investigations of the excitation and relaxation mechanisms of the Eu ions in such NCs are reported. Based on the photoluminescence excitation, absorbance, photoluminescence and(More)
Aim To develop specific fluorescent markers for melano-ma tumor visualization, which would provide high selec-tivity and reversible binding pattern, by the use of carbohydrate recognizing proteins, lectins, combined with the physical ability for imaging deep in the living tissues by utilizing red and near infrared fluorescent properties of specific(More)
Sodium fluoride-based β-NaLnF4 nanoparticles (NPs) doped with lanthanide ions are promising materials for application as luminescent markers in bio-imaging. In this work, the effect of NPs doped with yttrium (Y), gadolinium (Gd), europium (Eu), thulium (Tm), ytterbium (Yb) and terbium (Tb) ions on phagocytic activity of monocytes and granulocytes and the(More)
