This research explored the use of nanodiamonds as magnetic sensors and their interaction with biological samples. The research covers three areas. First, surface functionalisation of the nanoparticles and its effect when interacting with cells. Second, a new approach, based on nanodiamonds, to collect biomarkers from a sample of human serum. Finally, we used Nitrogen-Vacancy centers implanted in nanodiamonds as a sensor to detect magnetic biomolecules. The results from this project enable further investigations of Diamond Magnetometry applied to measure stress response in cells.
