There remains a paucity of methodological tools to determine the biodistribution of vaccine antigens. In response to this, we established a near-infrared (NIR) imaging method using a NIR fluorophore, ZW800-1C, conjugated with different sizes of vaccine antigens that allows for real-time monitoring of the fate of delivered vaccines in vivo. The fluorescent signal observed using the system after a model vaccine injection in mice recapitulated the size-dependent transport of the vaccine into the secondary lymphoid tissue. This methodology can be broadly applied for optimization of formulations and safety evaluation of clinical vaccines.
