We report fabrication of magnetically responsive Chlorella pyrenoidosa cells using poly(diallyldimethyl ammonium chloride)-stabilised iron oxide nanoparticles. The nanoparticles were characterised using transmission electron microscopy and dark-field microscopy. The interaction of magnetic nanomaterials with C. pyrenoidosa cells was studied, and high biocompability of these nanomaterials was demonstrated.
