Intravital microscopy has been demonstrated to be a powerful technique for studying the delivery of contrast or therapeutic agents to tumours growing in a realistic 3D environment at high resolution. Surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS)-active nanoparticle contrast agents provide the ability to improve in-vivo detection of tumour tissue through multiplex detection of their uniquely bright spectral lines. However, most work to date has been carried out in-vitro or in ex-vivo tissues. Here we present the results from confocal Raman microscopy in a dorsal skinfold window chamber in mice using SERS-active gold nanoparticle contrast agents directed towards an overexpressed tumour receptor tyrosine kinase.
