    1. Fluorescent labeling of NMSs
    2. First estimates of NMS binding by fluorescence microscopy
    3. Internal of external binding by confocal microscopy
    4. Single-cell image/confocal analysis
    5. Flow cytometric quantitation of NMS binding to specific cell types
  2. Image confocal analysis of NMS binding to single cells
    1. Ability to scan/locate cells of interest
    2. Photobleaching challenges
    3. Optical sectioning for 3D location of NMSs on/within cells
  3. A quick overview of flow cytometry
    1. Basic principles
    2. Capabilities and limitations
    3. Use for assessing specificity and sensitivity
  4. Rare-event analysis of NMS targeting to desired cells
