Hydroxy magnetic nanoparticles
MagP®-OH are superparamagnetic core-shell nanoparticles (≈115 nm) in which the shell is a crosslinked polymeric matrix functionalised with hydroxyl groups.
MagP®-OH can be directly used for biomedical imaging, biospecies separation and bioassay development. The enhanced hydrophilicity of MagP®-OH translates into a high degree of biocompatibility, which is important for decreasing background in particle-based assay and in preventing denaturation of immobilised biomolecules.
They are available in aqueous suspension (2 mg/mL) stabilised with surfactants. Thus, they have to be cleaned before use.
