Magnetic Stimulus Testing

General Protocol:

  1. Centrifuge the 1.5mL eppendorf tubes with the samples for 15 minutes.
  2. Remove R6G supernatant. Store in fresh eppendorf tube.
  3. Add 1.3mL deionized H2O to the eppendorf tube.
  4. Remove the deionized water.
  5. Repeat this rinsing process a minimum of three times.
  6. Add 1.3mL of water to the eppendorf tube.
  7. Place sample on UV/fluorescence light to see if dye present in hydrogel samples
  8. Centrifuge the sample for 15 minutes.
  9. Remove the deionized water and place in clean eppendorf for testing (see if dye is coming out with centrifuging).
  10. Add 1.5mL water to sample
  11. Vortex the sample for ~2 min (until homogeneous suspension of hydrogels)
  12. Apply magnet to outside of eppendorf tube for a minimum of 30 seconds (until all sample has aggregated).
  13. Vortex sample again to re-suspend the hydrogels (minimum 15 seconds)
  14. Re-apply magnet
  15. Complete this vortex/magnet process for 4 minutes
  16. Analyze deionized water using fluorescence



  • All hydrogels responded to external magnetic stimuli. It appears sonication method was the most effective.
