Superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoflowers were synthesized by a one-pot solvothermal route, and characterized (size, morphology, chemical composition, and magnetic properties) to be used as labels in lateral flow immunoassays. Their structure consists of several superparamagnetic cores embedded in a carbon coating with carboxylic groups adequate for bioconjugation using the carbodiimide chemistry. A magnetic lateral flow immunoassay was developed for extracellular vesicle (a novel source of biomarkers) detection directly in a plasma sample. The method showed a low limit of detection (4 × 106 EVs/µL) and a reproducibility (RSD) of 3% (n = 3). In addition, these nanoparticles are easy to concentrate by means of a magnet. This feature makes them promising candidates to be used in immunoseparation to enhance the limit of detection. View this paper.
