Paper Abstract

The consumption of singlet oxygen quenchers during illumination of cells incubated with photosensitizers is a serious issue for the determination of singlet oxygen kinetics in cells. Using LNCaP cells incubated with pheophorbide a it will be shown, that already an illumination of 100 nJ/cell dramatically changes the value of the observables. This finding has consequences for the spatial resolution of any time-resolved singlet oxygen measurement, since the radiative rate constant of singlet oxygen in aqueous solutions is very small.
