Superparamagnetic relaxometry (SPMR) for sensitive detection of Her-2 positive tumors in mice

, , , , , , , , , , ,
Superparamagnetic Relaxometry (SPMR) is a non-invasive technique that utilizes superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) detectors to localize and quantify the magnetization of superparamagnetic iron oxide (Fe3O4) nanoparticles (NPs) specifically bound to cancerous tumors. In an [...]

Optimization of synthesis conditions to prepare desired shell thickness of superparamagnetic MgFe2O4@SiO2 core-shell nanosphere for biomedical applications

, , , , , , , ,
We have described here a simple way for the fabrication of superparamagnetic MgFe2O4@SiO2 core-shell spherical nanoparticles with controlled shell thickness. First, core MgFe2O4 dense nano-spheres were directly synthesized by ultrasonic spray pyrolysis (USP) technique from [...]

Synthesis and Characterization of Superparamagnetic Nanoparticles Coated with Carboxymethylated Cassava Starch for Drug Delivery System

, , , , ,
Magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) are increasingly being considered for a number of biomedical applications due to their inherent ultra fine size, biocompatibility and superparamagnetic properties. The functional properties of the MNPs can be tailored for specific [...]
