Abstract: Accurate delivery of cells to target organs is critical for success of cell-based therapies with stem cells or
immune cells such as antigen-presenting dendritic cells (DC). Labeling with contrast agents before
implantation provides a powerful means for monitoring cellular migration using magnetic resonance
imaging (MRI). In this study, we investigated the uptake of fully synthesized or bacterial magnetic
nanoparticles (MNPs) into hematopoietic Flt3+ stem cells and DC from mouse bone marrow. We show
that (i) uptake of both synthetic and biogenic nanoparticles into cells endow magnetic activity and
(ii) low numbers of MNP-loaded cells are readily detected by MRI.
