Due to its optical clarity the eye represents an especially interesting subject for in vivo studies. Dengler et al. used amine-functionalized magnetic TurboBeads to target the eye of a mice in vivo. For this the nanoparticles were labeled with Tc to allow the monitoring of the radioactive biodistribution. Further in vitro cytotoxicity of the functionalized TurboBeads was investigated.
