In vitro toxicity evaluation of single walled carbon nanotubes on human A549 lung cells.
This paper describes the in vitro cytotoxicity assessment of single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) on A549 cells, a human lung cell line. Cellular viability was determined using the alamar blueExpand

A new approach to the toxicity testing of carbon-based nanomaterials--the clonogenic assay.
The cellular toxicity of three types of carbon nanoparticles, namely HiPco single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT), arc discharge SWCNT and Printex 90 carbon black nanoparticles, was studied on threeExpand

Resonant Mie scattering (RMieS) correction of infrared spectra from highly scattering biological samples.
Infrared spectra of single biological cells often exhibit the 'dispersion artefact' observed as a sharp decrease in intensity on the high wavenumber side of absorption bands, in particular the AmideExpand

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) induced cytokine production and cytotoxicity of PAMAM dendrimers in J774A.1 cells.
The immunotoxicity of three generations of polyamidoamine (PAMAM) dendrimers (G-4, G-5 and G-6) was evaluated in mouse macrophage cells in vitro. Using the Alamar blue and MTT assays, a generationExpand

Resonant Mie scattering in infrared spectroscopy of biological materials--understanding the 'dispersion artefact'.
Infrared spectroscopic cytology is potentially a powerful clinical tool. However, in order for it to be successful, practitioners must be able to extract reliably a pure absorption spectrum from aExpand

Dispersion medium modulates oxidative stress response of human lung epithelial cells upon exposure to carbon nanomaterial samples.
Due to their large specific surface area, the potential of nanoparticles to be highly reactive and to induce oxidative stress is particularly high. In addition, some types of nanoparticles containExpand
