Iron-Oxide Nanoparticles Can Successfully Detect Ovarian Tumors In Vivo

Iron-Oxide Nanoparticles Can Successfully Detect Ovarian Tumors In Vivo

Google’s latest search initiative isn’t taking place online, but in the human body instead. On October 28, The Wall Street Journal reported that the Internet giant wants to design tiny magnetic particles to patrol the body for signs of cancer and other diseases. Google said its nanoparticles, less than one-thousandth the width of a red blood cell, would seek out and attach themselves to cells, proteins or other molecules inside the body. [More]

RF Excited Magnetic Nanoparticles May Help Achieve Uniform Warming of Bulky Vitrified Systems

Successful techniques for cryopreserving bulk biomaterials and organ systems would transform current approaches to transplantation and regenerative medicine. However, while vitrified cryopreservation holds great promise, practical application has been limited to smaller systems (cells and thin tissues) due to diffusive heat and mass transfer limitations, which are typically manifested as devitrification and cracking failures during thaw.

Magnetothermal Multiplexing of Nanomaterials Holds Promise for Targeted Drug Delivery

Magnetic nanoparticles don’t have to be "one size fits all." Instead, individual magnetic nanoparticles can be tailored in an array of differing sizes and compositions to allow for heating them separately by varying the frequency and amplitude of an external alternating magnetic field, MIT graduate student Michael G. Christiansen and colleagues show in a recent Applied Physics Letters paper. [More]
Microtextured Surface Impregnated with Ferromagnetic Nanoparticles Enable Precise Control of Particle Movement

Microtextured Surface Impregnated with Ferromagnetic Nanoparticles Enable Precise Control of Particle Movement

Researchers at MIT and in Saudi Arabia have developed a new way of making surfaces that can actively control how fluids or particles move across them. The work might enable new kinds of biomedical or microfluidic devices, or solar panels that could automatically clean themselves of dust and grit. [More]
