Abstract:

Internalization of biocompatible magnetic nanoparticles by red blood cells (RBCs) is a key issue for opportunities of new applications in the biomedical field. In this study, we used in vitro tests to provide evidences of magnetic nanoparticle internalization by mice red blood cells. The internalization process depends upon the nanoparticle concentration and the nanoparticle hydrodynamic radii. The cell internalization of surface-coated maghemite nanoparticles was indirectly tracked by Raman spectroscopy and directly observed using transmission electron microscopy. The observation of nanoparticle cell uptaking using in vitro experiments represents an important breakthrough for the application of nanomagnetism in diagnosis and therapy of RBC-related diseases.
