Researchers have developed a novel process for isolating and purifying magnetic nanoparticles biosynthesized by bacteria.
A new study from the University of Bayreuth in Germany has demonstrated the optimization of a process that encourages bacterial magnetic nanoparticle synthesis. In their initial tests, the magnetosomes - organelles encased in magnetic bacteria - exhibited biocompatibility when incubated with human cell lines. Results of their research appear in the journal Acta Biomaterialia.
