In this report, we describe a laser-latex combination system that enables membrane-impermeable molecules to penetrate cell membranes. Laser light (Q-switched Nd:YAG laser, 532.5 nm) was used to irradiate a mixture of commercial latex particles (blue dyed, 1 micro m in diameter) and mouse fibrosarcoma (Meth-A) cells. After irradiation, membrane permeability was evaluated by flow cytometric assaying using propidium iodide (PI) and fluorescein diacetate (FDA). The proportion of permeabilized… CONTINUE READING
