We are happy to announce a new publication with our cooperation partners from the department of Biology and Environmental Science:
"Lethal effects and ultrastructure of cellular uptake of ingested gold nanoparticles in the freshwater rotifer Brachionus calyciflorus (Monogononta: Brachionidae)" published in Environmental Pollution.
The left light microscopy image shows a rotifer (Brachionus calyciflorus), the right picture a rotifer that was exposed to citrate-stabilized gold nanoparticles (11.6 nm). More information about the process and the outcome can be found in the paper:
Julia Geppert is acknowledged for providing her light microscopy images.
