Lovell Study Suggests Nanoparticle Juice is Excellent Imaging Agent for the Gut

Updated October 5, 2016

A new UB study by Jonathan F. Lovell, PhD, assistant professor of biomedical engineering, a joint program between the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, suggests that chlorophyll-based nanoparticles suspended in liquid are an effective imaging agent for the gut.

“Our work suggests that this spinach-like, nanoparticle juice can help doctors get a better look at what’s happening inside the stomach, intestines and other areas of the GI tract,” he said.
