  author={Junyi Wu and Gaojun Liu and Yi-Xian Qin and Yizhi Meng},
  journal={arXiv: Biomolecules},
Using low molecular weight chitosan nanoparticles (CNPs) prepared by an ionic gelation method, we report the effect of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (US) on cell viability and nanoparticle uptake in cultured murine pre-osteoblasts. Particle size and zeta potential are measured using Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS), and cell viability is evaluated using the MTS assay. Results show that 30 min delivery of CNPs at 0.5 mg/mL is able to prevent loss of cell viability due to either serum starvation…
