Abstract

We report herein an investigation into dynamic magnetic clustering that occurs during immunoassays as biofunctionalized magnetic nanoparticles (BMNs) become associated with biotargets. We measure the dynamic effective relaxation time Teff(f) and use scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) to investigate the C-reactive protein (CRP) as it associates with the BMN Fe3O4-antiCRP to form the magnetic cluster Fe3O4-antiCRP-CRP. The results indicate that Teff(f) increases with increasing association time. In addition, the ration ΔTeff/T0as a function of CRP concentration follows a characteristic logistic function, which provides a basis for estimating the quantity of biomole-cules with a detection sensitivity close to 0.1 ppm. After the association, SEM and TEM images show that CRP and Fe3O4-antiCRP conjugate to form Fe3O4-antiCRP-CRP clusters hundreds of nanometers in size. The SEM and TEM images provide direct evidence of the formation of magnetic clustering.
