Stem cell tracking is being performed in NMR as an indirect measurement of effects caused by iron nanoparticles which suffers from ambiguity and strong background dependency of the observed signal changes. Recently a method for direct imaging of magnetic particles has been introduced. Here a setup for spectroscopic detection of magnetic nanoparticles along with measurements to characterize those particles and to detect labeled stem cells is presented.
