Abstract:

This report describes a research project in the area of bio-magnetics interfacing concepts aimed at developing a microfluidic system based on the use of magnetic nanoparticles for the quantitative detection of biological species in various media. Novel bio-compatible ferrofluids of functionalized magnetic nanoparticles suitable for bioconjugation of antibodies or other active biomolecules are developed, prepared, and tested for us in biomedical research, and various biological and clinical diagnostic applications.
