A fluorescence leakage assay was used in a high-throughput setup to obtain information on the phospholipid vesicle leakage induced by the addition of silica nanoparticles. We showed that this method can be used not only to scan for the conditions under which leakage occurs, but also to obtain quantitative information on the interaction between these nanoparticles and the phospholipid membranes.
