Dynamic nanodetectors for magnetic nanoparticles

By Daniel Bartels • June 22nd, 2015

Magnetic biosensors, in which disease markers in biological samples are tagged with magnetic nanoparticles, have the potential to be an important base technology for future point-of-care medical diagnostics devices. At the heart of many of these devices is a magnetoresistive sensor which detects the magnetic fields generated around the nanoparticles (and thus the presence ofmore…
