Abstract
Investigation of the nanoparticle (NP) uptake in cells, tissues or whole creatures provides important information about the toxic potency of NPs. Life-imaging, fixed sample analysis, metal element analysis as well as combinations thereof have been be used to visualise entry of NPs into and distribution in selected model organisms. Visualisation of a variety of NPs in several cell types (mostly mammalian) as well as a small organism (nematode Caeno-rhabditis elegans) by means of electron microscopy (TEM, REM) as well as fluorescence microscopic techniques (TIRF, cLSM) have been carried out. Results will be given in this presentation.
