Optical nanosensors have been designed to utilise the sensitivity of fluorescence for making quantitative measurements in the intracellular environment, using devices that are small enough to be inserted into living cells with a minimum of physical perturbation. Advantages over widely used fluorescence dye based methods are observed because the nanosensor matrix imparts two key benefits; (1) protection of the sensing component from interfering species within the intracellular environment and (2… CONTINUE READING
