Table 1 Naked SPION and SPION characterization

From: Monitoring the effects of dexamethasone treatment by MRI using in vivo iron oxide nanoparticle-labeled macrophages

Particles Medium Concentration, mg Fe/ml Cores size, nm Particle size (PDI), nm Zeta potential at pH 7, mV PVA/Fe ratio, mg PVA/mg Fe Saturation magnetization, EMU/g
Naked SPION HNO3 10 mM 10 7.2 ± 2.5 14 ± 2 (0.25) 0 ± 3 0 54
SPION HNO3 5 mM 5 7.2 ± 2.5 25 ± 3 (0.20) +16 ± 3 9 54
  1. Core sizes: diameter of SPION measured by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) image analyses; particle size: hydrodynamic number-weighted diameter measured by PCS and given with polydispersity index
  2. SPION, superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles; PDI, polydispersity index.
  3. +/- are standard error for the core size and +/SD for the rest the parameters (Particle size and Zeta potential).
