Self-assembling nanocarriers of amphiphilic polymers encapsulate hydrophobic fluorophores in their hydrophobic interior and, upon injection in Drosophila melanogaster embryos, release their cargo into the cellular blastoderm. The fluorescence of the delivered probes can be detected immediately upon injection to allow the visualization of the very early stages of embryogenesis.
