Hybrid nanoparticles are one of the most important classes of colloidal materials due to the current interest in biomedical field, supported chemistry and physical area. These hybrid materials bearing or not intrinsic physical properties can be used in vivo and invitro applications. In this direction, various particles are commonly used as solid support in immunoassays for instance, for specific nucleic acids concentration, cell labelling and separation and in numerous biotechnological applications.

For in vivo applications, various kinds of nanoparticles, nanospheres and nanocapsules have been developed and numerous processes have been used. Magnetic hybrid nanoparticles exhibit many interesting properties that can be exploited in a variety of applications, particularly in vitro diagnostic and bioseparation applications, microfluidic, lab-on-a-chip, etc.

The aim of this work is to report on the preparation of highly magnetic reactive submicron magnetic particles for sample preparation, transport, detection and finally surface coating, enhancement and modification.


Professor Abdelhamid ELAISSARI is the Director of Research at the CNRS in Lyon, France. He works at the LAGEP Laboratory in Villeurbanne. He is the Project Manager at the Claude Bernard University of Lyon I for international relations and Ph.D. promotion abroad. He is also the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Colloid Sciences and Biotechnology. Member of the Board of Directors of the Council of the Doctoral School of Chemistry of Lyon1 University.

He is an internationally renowned scientist in the field of nanoparticles, colloidal particles and their various therapeutic, medical, diagnostic and industrial applications. He has authored more than 200 articles and scientific books.
