Gold nanoparticle aggregate carbon nanotube functionalized colloidal particles serve as an efficient platform for probing the intracellular environment. The probes provide the means of effective localization of signal and detection of molecular fingerprints of biomolecules in living cells. The approach demonstrated in this work opens significant opportunities in molecular imaging as well as intracellular sensing and trafficking.
