Until recently magnetic nanoparticles
were coupled with antibodies and greater than 65% Salmonella typhi antigen was bound to nanoparticles within 30 minutes.
Miltenyi sells microbeads which are magnetic nanoparticles
conjugated to antibodies which can be used to target specific cells.
Their topics include polymeric nanoparticles: general features, polymers, and formulation aspects; nanoparticles as nanopharmaceuticals: smart drug delivery systems; magnetic nanoparticles
for drug delivery; an overview of applications of gold nanoparticles in therapeutics; solid lipid nanoparticles in drug delivery for skin care; and carbon nanotubes for drug delivery: focus on antimicrobial activity.
The method required making a special complex consisting of enzymes and magnetic nanoparticles
. The particles then adsorb radio emission and convert it to heat that accelerates enzymatic processes by more than four times.
Thomas Crawford, University of South Carolina: How recording medium properties affect the self-assembling of magnetic nanoparticles
onto recorded nanotemplates.
The nanorobots consist of millions of magnetic nanoparticles
that can change their form depending on their environment.
The novel method makes use of magnetic nanoparticles
to simplify the extraction of pyrethorid, a synthetic pesticide widely used in vegetable farming to control pests.
Results of the research have been published on the renowned journal Nature Nanotechnology, in an article titled 'Combination of fucoidan-based magnetic nanoparticles
and immunomodulators enhances tumour-localized immunotherapy.'
Abu Dhabi: Scientists at New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) are leading an innovative research project that could have several positive implications on how cancer is treated in the future, as they combine existing treatments with new methods involving magnetic nanoparticles
