Optimisation of magnetoliposomes for biomedical multi-tasking; potential dual contrast agents and drug delivery vehicles

Authors: C.J. Meledandri and D.F. Brougham

Affilation: National Institute for Cellular Biotechnology, Ireland

Pages: 335 - 338

Keywords: magnetoliposomes, contrast agents, NMRD, magnetic filtration

Abstract:
The relaxivity and particle size of both solid and aqueous-type magnetoliposomes are compared. The effect of magnetic filtration on the particle size and the size distribution is also examined. Our results suggest that magnetic filtration could potentially be used for selective particle size control.
