Colloidal Gold Particles as a Marker of Plasma Perfusion and Endocytosis in Kidney, Liver, and Spleen
Studies of in vivo microvascular perfusion are commonly performed by injection of plasma tracers such as labeled fluorescent dyes.3,13–15 This method is suitable only at the light microscopic level and identifies only those capillaries which contain plasma tracer at sufficiently high concentrations.7
