The recognition and isolation of specific mammalian cells by the biocompatible polymer coated super-paramagnetic particles with determined surface functionality were studied. The method of synthesis of nanoscaled particles on a core of iron III oxide (Fe2O3, magemit) coated with a polymer shell containing reactive oligoperoxide groups for attachment of ligands is described.

By using the developed superparamagnetic particles functionalized with peanut agglutinin (PNA) we have separated the sub-populations of PNA+ and PNA cells from ascites of murine Nemeth-Kellner lymphoma.

In another type of experiment, the particles were opsonized with proteins of the fetal calf serum that improved biocompatibility of the particles and their ingestion by cultivated murine macrophages J774.2. Macrophages loaded with the particles were effeciently separated from the particles free cells by using the magnet. Thus, the developed surface functionalized superparamagnetic particles showed to be a versatile tool for cell separation independent on the mode of particles’ binding with cell surface or their engulfment by the targeted cells.

Key words: super-paramagnetic particles, cell selection, NK/Ly lymphoma, macrophages J774.2.
