Data from: Settling dynamics of nanoparticles in simple and biological media

Francesco Giorgi, Peter Macko, Jude Curran, Andrew Worth, Maurice Whelan & Eann Patterson
The biological response of organisms exposed to nanoparticles is often studied in vitro using adherent monolayers of cultured cells. In order to derive accurate concentration-response relationships, it is important to determine the local concentration of nanoparticles to which the cells are actually exposed rather than the nominal concentration of nanoparticles in the cell-culture medium. In this study, the sedimentation–diffusion process of different sized and charged gold nanoparticles has been investigated in vitro by evaluating their...
