Gold nanoparticles are used in many different ways in modern medicine and biology research. In particular, it includes genomics, biosensorics, immunoanalysis, clinical chemistry, the detection and photothermolysis of microorganisms and cancer cells, the targeted delivery of drugs, DNA and antigens, optical bioimaging and the tracking of cells and tissues using contemporary registration platforms.

Researchers believe that gold nanoparticles could be used in almost all areas of medicine, including diagnosis, treatment, prevention and hygiene. This information has been published in Acta Naturae.
