Abstract We describe here a nontoxic two-photon photodynamic nanoparticle platform and its cellular application. We demonstrate that the dye's potential toxicity can be circumvented by its permanent encapsulation into a biocompatible nanoparticle polymer matrix; this was examined by dye leaching experiments and confirmed by cell uptake experiments. Infrared two-photon nanoplatform phototoxicity was demonstrated for rat C6 glioma cells, while the controls showed no dark toxicity for these living cells.
