Magnetic Dumbbells

Magnetic particles greatly facilitate the manipulation of dumbbells by the opportunity they offer to separate them from the excess reagents and to drive them at a desired location. In the Laser Magnetic Immunoassay of Mizutani 48 , viruses captured on microbeads are let to react with antibodies labelled with magnetic particles. Magnetically labelled antigens are attracted and concentrated at one point of the surface, onto which is focused a laser beam, making an interference fringe whose intensity indicates the amount of virus.

Application to DNA Hybridization

The demonstration of DNA assay by LATMAG is carried out with a nucleic target from a pol region of the HIV-1 genome 57 . Two oligonucleotides complementary of two different regions of the target, modified so that they both could be immobilized on particles (Fig. 10), are used as capture probes to hybridize the DNA target between the two particles. One of the nucleic probes is modified with biotin to bind streptavidin magnetic particles. The other one is bound to an enzyme (horseradish peroxidase) and its capture on latex micro-sphere modified with anti-HRP antibodies is awaited. For both types of particles, the number of each specific nucleic probes added in the reaction mixture is carefully optimized so that it is less than the number of available capture sites. Therefore, no free hybrids should remain in solution to damage assay sensitivity. In the same view, to enhance the reaction, and unlike previously described applications, the capture of the target is carried out in two steps....

D A Liquid Cell Microcomponent to Improve Latmag Sensitivity

With multiple objectives (1) to retain weakly magnetic dumbbells and avoid the loss of specific signal, (2) to increase binding kinetics, and (3) to reduce the number of nonspecific dumbbells, a liquid microcell designed and produced by the LETI-CEA at Grenoble is used 62 . This microcomponent issued from silicon etching technology is depicted in Fig. 14. The component itself is made of silicon, recovered by a sealed transparent glass coverslip, allowing the cell The protocol for LATMAG should be somewhat modified to fit and to take profit of the chip. It is known that one of the main factors limiting sensitivity is the formation of unspecific complexes between magnetic particles and latex, leading to the presence of dumbbells even in the absence of DNA target. One solution to limit this adsorption is to reduce the number of particles. On the other hand, reduction of the volumic concentration of reagents is awaited to lower reaction yield and, thus, sensitivity. Magnetic properties of...


This patient's carcinoid tumor was diagnosed by chance during a follow up examination for previous large bowel polyps. Diagnosis by colonoscopy must be very unusual. Incidental diagnosis, usually at laparotomy, has been reported to occur in up to 60 of cases.1 At laparotomy, the dumbbell morphology of the luminal and mesenteric elements suggested the tumor was a leiomyoma. Carcinoids occur mostly in the lower third of the ileum, comprising up to 34 of all small intestinal neoplasms and up to 46 of malignant neoplasms.2 Most carcinomas of the ileum produce serotonin and substance P, which is common in the presence of hepatic metastases. It is not unusual for carcinoid tumors to be multiple, and there is a significant association with other types of synchronous primary malignancy, usually in the gastrointestinal tract.3 The presence of nodal or other metastases is related to the size of the primary tumor. In a literature review Memon et al. found the size metastasis relationship to be...

A Latmag Assay

The common characteristic of all dumbbell assays described above is that they are intrinsically limited in sensitivity by the fact that a significant number of labeled particles is needed to reach a detectable signal. None of the assays allows the detection of the unique particle because detection systems are not sensitive or specific enough. A new magnetic dumbbell system or LATMAG (latex and magnetic particle) assay tries to bring a solution to this challenge. The principle is as follows 51 the analyte to be assayed (antigen, DNA, bacteria, etc.) is captured between a magnetic bead and a latex particle, these two colloids being functionalized by ligands specific to two different sites of the analyte (epitope or nucleotide sequence). Dumbbells are separated from reaction medium under a magnetic field to discard the excess of free latex, resuspended, and assayed to determine the amount of latex particles (Fig. 1). The main originality of LATMAG is that magnetic particles are chosen so...


Several applications are described below to demonstrate the wide possibilities of LATMAG that can be relevant to the quantitative detection of almost all biomolecules. Protocols are almost the same whatever the analyte to be assayed. Incubation of magnetic and latex biosensitized particles occurs in the presence of targeted molecules, in an appropriate buffer containing salts and nonionic detergents. Afterward, the test tube is placed in the strong magnetic field generated by a rare earth alloy. After magnetic sedimentation, the supernatant is removed. Dumbbells and free magnetic particles that cannot be physically separated at this stage are dispersed in the desired buffer, and observed by eye, analyzed by spectrophotometry to measure the absorbance, or deposited onto a glass slide that is placed under a microscope to determine the number of latex particles. Reference samples without target are always needed to evaluate the amount of nonspecific adsorption of magnetic particles onto...

Antibody Detection

LATMAG can be applied for the detection of antibodies (Fig. 3) whose presence is researched, among numerous examples, in viral infections (anti-P24 antibodies) or for detecting pregnancy (anti-HCG antibodies). The strategy is to capture biotinylated IgG 56 between magnetic streptavidin particles and latex micro-spheres modified to exhibit affinity toward the targets. In Fig. 4 are reported images realized from microscope glass slides onto which are deposited preparations for different target IgG concentration. Only latex particles can be detected in these conditions because magnetic particles are too small to be optically resolved. An increase of the latex particle number per unit area as a function of antibody concentration is observed, proving that dumbbell complexes, bridged by IgG, are formed between latex and magnetic particles and that they can be separated from the medium by an appropriate magnetic field. Dumbbells can also be studied more precisely by transmission electron...

Antigen Detection

To demonstrate that several detection methods are compatible with LATMAG, dumbbell suspensions are assayed by spectrophotocolorimetry to measure the turbidity brought by the presence of latex particles (Fig. 9). At very low antigen FIG. 8 LATMAG protocol for the detection of TSH molecules. Polystyrene latex particles were modified by grafting anti P-TSH antibodies. On the other hand, biotinylated anti a-TSH antibodies were captured onto streptavidin magnetic particles. In the presence of TSH, the formation of dumbbells was evidenced by measuring the optical density or turbidity of the magnetic suspension after the elimination of free latex particles.

As in paraganglioma' high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) is superior in defining skull base bony erosion. Imaging should include the posterior cranial fossa' skull base' and the upper cervical region. On CT, schwannomas display ovoid enlargement of the jugular foramen, involving predominantly the pars nervosa, with smooth indistinct sclerotic margins.1'4 In contrast, temporal bone paragangliomas causes irregular enlargement of the jugular foramen, with indistinct margins (Table 83-4). Lesions in the pars nervosa of the jugular foramen, may often be distinguished from hypoglossal schwannomas, which often present as dumbbell-shaped with intra- and extracranial extension.54


Meningiomas spread along preformed bony channels. The most common pathway for extracranial meningioma to extend beyond the confines of the skull is through the jugular foramen into the parapharyngeal space.59 The vascular spongiotic spaces may be diffusely infiltrated by tumor cells. Intracranial meningiomas that develop an extracranial extension via the jugular foramen assume an hourglass or dumbbell tumor configuration. The adjacent bone may show evidence of the classic reactive sclerosis and hyperostosis. In contrast, meningiomas originating from within the jugular foramen follow the direction of least resistance as they increase in size. They extend extracranially into the parapha-ryngeal space and neck, without entering the posterior cranial fossa.59 Origin within the foramen of the skull base is evident by the extracranial parapharygeal location of these tumors, their firm attachment to the skull base at the jugular foramen, and the absence of any tumor tissue within the...

Getting Started With Dumbbells

The use of dumbbells gives you a much more comprehensive strengthening effect because the workout engages your stabilizer muscles, in addition to the muscle you may be pin-pointing. Without all of the belts and artificial stabilizers of a machine, you also engage your core muscles, which are your body's natural stabilizers.
