Abstract

Hybrid magnetic phospholipidic-based tubular and helical microagents are wirelessly manipulated by means of a 5-DOF electromagnetic system. Two different strategies are used to manipulate these nanostructures in simulated biologic capillaries. Tubules are pulled by applying magnetic field gradients and oriented by magnetic fields. Helices exhibit a cork-screw motion similar to the swimming strategy used by motile bacteria such as E. coli. Copyright © 2012 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
