Abstract

© The Royal Society of Chemistry and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique 2016.
Lanthanide-doped upconversion nanoparticles are promising dual mode near-infrared (NIR) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) bioimaging agents. In this communication we report the utility of NaGdF4:Yb,Er nanoparticles with a functional poly(glycidyl methacrylate) (PGMA) coating, as a biocompatible multimodal formulation for neuronal cell imaging.
