Effect of PBS-citrate (control), TiO2 and ZnO agglomerated engineered nanoparticles on washed canine erythrocytes. Effect of PBS-citrate (control) (A), TiO2 (B) and ZnO (C) agglomerated engineered nanoparticles on populations of washed canine erythrocytes. An erythrocyte with pores (pores are marked by black arrows) in an untreated sample (D). Binding of agglomerates to washed canine erythrocytes: large TiO2 agglomerate (marked by a black arrow) (E) and numerous ZnO aggregates on the surface of echinocyte (marked by a white arrow) (F). Agglomerated engineered nanoparticles were suspended in phosphate buffer saline.
