Luminescent metal complexes are increasingly being investigated as emissive probes and sensors for cell imaging using what is traditionally termed fluorescence microscopy. The nature of the emission in the case of second- and third-row metal complexes is phosphorescence rather than fluorescence, as it emanates from triplet rather than singlet excited states, but the usual terminology overlooks the distinction between the quantum mechanical origins of the processes. In steady-state imaging, such… Expand
Two-Photon Phosphorescence Lifetime Microscopy.
Two-photon Phosphorescence Lifetime Microscopy (2PLM) is an emerging nonlinear optical technique that has great potential to improve our understanding of the basic biology underlying human health andExpand
Refining a correlative light electron microscopy workflow using luminescent metal complexes.
TLDR
An Iridium-based luminescent metal complex is presented as a probe and how a CLEM workflow based on such metal complexes is developed is described, partially due to requirements for a single probe to be suitable for light and electron microscopy. Expand
Autofluorescence-Free Live-Cell Imaging Using Terbium Nanoparticles.
TLDR
The application of a new type of surface-photosensitized terbium NPs for autofluorescence-free intracellular imaging in live HeLa cells shows the unprecedented photophysical properties of Tb-NPs for live-cell imaging that extend well beyond currently available nanometric imaging agents. Expand
Oxygen-Insensitive Aggregates of Pt(II) Complexes as Phosphorescent Labels of Proteins with Luminescence Lifetime-Based Readouts.
TLDR
These aggregates emit with the characteristic green luminescence profile of monomeric complexes, indicating that Pt-Pt or excimeric interactions are negligible, and it is shown that these aggregates can be used to label a model biomolecule with a microsecond-range luminescent. Expand

Biocompatible Ir(III) Complexes as Oxygen Sensors for Phosphorescence Lifetime Imaging
TLDR
Four novel iridium complexes designed and synthetized with higher degree of the chromophore shielding possess low toxicity, bleaching stability, absence of sensitivity to variations of pH, serum, and complex concentrations, and can be used as semi-quantitative oxygen sensors in biological systems.

Recent progress in engineering near-infrared persistent luminescence nanoprobes for time-resolved biosensing/bioimaging
Persistent luminescence nanoprobes (PLNPs) can remain luminescent after ceasing excitation. Due to the ultra-long decay time of persistent luminescence (PersL), autofluorescence interference can beExpand
