Magnetic hyperthermia

Location: Biomaterials Lab
Responsible: Paula Soares (Ext. 10633)
Computer controlled applicator for calorimetry design for an accurate determination of the physical parameters that describe the heating effects of alternating magnetic fields on magnetic nanosystems. The DM100 system has a modular organization:
Controller: The controller is the core of the system, in which the control system, the power source and the physical support of the user interface are hosted.
Applicator: The sample itself, the field generator and the different sensors that monitor and make measurements during the test are hosted in the applicator.
MANIAC: Magnetic Nanoparticle Inductive heating Applicator Code (MANIAC) is the software installed in the controller, which allows the user to operate the system, to perform tests on the applicator and to carry out the subsequent analysis of the results.
