A practical and accurate rapid spectrophotometric technique to quantify iron concentration in SPIO-labeled cells has been developed. The technique protocol lyses cells with 10% SDS in 1 min, does not require overnight acid digestion of SPIO, and measures colloidal iron directly using readily available UV–vis spectrophotometers. This protocol has comparable accuracy and limits of quantification to ICP-MS, NMR-R2 relaxometry and other colorimetric methods and can be applied to other metal nanoparticles (e.g. gold) used for labeling cells.
