Cells in motion: Multifunctional nanoparticles, with a unique combination of magnetic and fluorescent properties, coupled with biocompatibility are prepared. The uptake of the magnetic nanoparticles by cells is investigated, and an external “magnetic motor effect” on the cells containing the nanoparticles is observed (see scheme).
