Various biomedical applications for AMF mediated nanoparticle heating have emerged over the past decades, such as Magnetic fluid hyperthermia, controlled drug delivery and nanoactuation. Taking this fact into consideration and trying to bridge the gap between pure biologists, physicists, chemists and material scientists ? NanoTherics has developed a purpose built device with suitable accessories to suit all of these areas of expertise. The ergonomic design of this setup enables the user to mount it on any microscope compatible with 6/24/96 tissue culture plates.
The setup enables physiological temperature control and a 5% CO2 atmosphere, so that the cells can grow uninterrupted for the required time scale. This option allows microscope experiments with AMF exposure at frequencies ranging from 100 kHz to 1 MHz with a field amplitude of up to 20 mT. Unique additional features also allow researchers to use this setup to perform time lapse imaging with any type of microscope.
