A combined, optospectroscopic and electrochemical assay system for the simultaneous monitoring of intra- and extracellular production of biologically important species has been developed and assessed. The present model system evaluates intra- and extracellular nitric oxide produced by stimulated glioblastoma multiform cell line (A172). The production of endogenous NO was induced by phorbol-12-myristate-13-acetate and inhibited by Nω-nitro-L- arginine methyl ester. Intracellular production of NO was monitored via fluorescence image analysis using a 4,5-diaminofluorescein probe, while extracellular NO release was monitored via a chemically modified electrode, which was incorporated into an optically transparent cell chip. The results indicated that there was no mutual interference between the optical and electrochemical measurement systems. The response time of the combined optical/electrochemical system was found to be in the range of a few tens of seconds. © 2005 American Chemical Society.
