Nile Red fluorescent marker is widely-used for different purposes, such as staining cell structures and for the visualization and localization of colloidal drug carriers. However, when fluorescence-dependent imaging or quantification is performed, the risk of inexact results is increased due to photobleaching. The proposed, simple quantification method of using an HPLC-UV-Vis system allows the determination of Nile Red even in photobleached samples. The intra- and inter-assay accuracies for all analytes were found to be within 94.9 and 100.8%, respectively, of target values. When samples underwent photobleaching by laser, UV-Vis detection varied at around 99+/-5%, whereas fluorescence decreased down to 86%. Such results show this method to be interesting for approaches where quantification should be performed after analysis such as fluorescent imaging.
