Uptake of fluorescein isothiocynate-dextran (FITC-dextran) by Chinese hamster ovary cells was studied after exposure to ultrasonic standing wave (USW) in presence of Optison, an ultrasound contrast agent. Confluent Chinese hamster ovary cells were harvested and suspended in phosphate-buffered saline + 0.1% bovine serum albumin containing FITC-dextran (10, 40, and 500 kDa) at 10 microM final concentration. The suspension was seeded with contrast agent (75 microL/mL) and exposed to a 1.5 MHz USW… CONTINUE READING
