Semiconductor nanoparticles (NPs) became important and wide-used tool for cell imaging because of their unique remarkable properties. Nevertheless, all previous investigations in this area were done on proliferating cells. For the first time, this work demonstrates strong influence of cell active proliferation/contact inhibition of proliferation on uptake(More)
An electronic tongue concept based on 2D mapping of photogenerated charge carrier lifetimes in silicon put in contact with different liquids is reported. Such method based on intrinsic sensitivity of the silicon surface states to the surrounding studied liquids allows creation of their characteristic electronic fingerprints. To increase recognition(More)
The electronic tongue based on the array of low selective photovoltaic (PV) sensors and principal component analysis is proposed for detection of various alcohol solutions. A sensor array is created at the forming of p-n junction on silicon wafer with porous silicon layer on the opposite side. A dynamical set of sensors is formed due to the inhomogeneous(More)
Covalent grafting of amino groups onto the carboxylic acid functionalities, naturally covering the surface of fluorescent nanoparticles produced from silicon carbide (SiC NPs), allowed tuning of their surface charge from negative to highly positive. Incubating 3T3-L1 fibroblast cells with differently charged SiC NPs demonstrates the crucial role of the(More)
Nanoparticles became an important and wide-used tool for cell imaging because of their unique optical properties. Although the potential of nanoparticles (NPs) in biology is promising, a number of questions concerning the safety of nanomaterials and the risk/benefit ratio of their usage are open. Here, we have shown that nanoparticles produced from silicon(More)
A phenomenon of changes in photoluminescence of porous silicon at variations in medium pH is proposed to be used as a basis for the biosensor system development. The method of conversion of a biochemical signal into an optical one is applied for direct determination of glucose and urea as well as for inhibitory analysis of heavy metal ions. Changes in the(More)
Size tuning of silicon (Si) nanoparticles (NPs) with the use of meso-porous silicon (meso-PS) free-standing layers is reported for the first time. Accumulation of Si NPs inside the membrane pores during the filtering process (NP transport through the meso-PS) leads to an auto-filtration effect (called Si-by-Si (SBS) filtration) allowing more efficient size(More)
Trypsin is often used to detach adhered cell subculture from a substrate. However, the proteolytic activity of trypsin may harm cells by cleaving the cell membrane proteins. The present study shows that cellular uptake of fluorescent nanoparticles is remarkably increased within 24 h after trypsinization. These results highlight the trypsin-induced protein(More)
A photoluminescence method to detect the toxic melamine contamination in fat watery milk has been proposed. Despite the quite different luminescence origins of milk and melamine patterns, their wide emission spectra under UV excitation are similar and in the range of 2.2-3.5 eV. The complex milk photoluminescence spectrum composed of riboflavin, furosine,(More)
Electronic scanning microscopy was used in the work to obtain the image and to identify the sizes of titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles 21 ± 5 nm. The qualitative and quantitative elemental analysis of the preparations of the caecum, antrum, myometrium, kidneys, and lungs of the rats, burdened with titanium dioxide, was also performed. It was established(More)
