We propose medical applications using ultra-small magnetic particles and a SQUID magnetic sensor. A high-Tc SQUID system for biological molecules (DNA) detection is one of that. This system is based on a hybridization process. Two strands in a DNA molecule are held together by hydrogen bonds between base pairs like a ladder. The two strands are referred to as being complementary to each other. One strand (sample DNA) was labeled with Fe3O4 ultra-small magnetic particles and the other (probe DNA) was anchored on a glass slide. Then they were hybridized each other on the slide. After washing the excess sample DNA, the hybridized DNA was evaluated in the presence of excitation AC field by high-Tc SQUID. The signal was initially proportional to the concentration of the sample DNA and then saturated. It means that the hybridization occurred successfully between the sample DNA and the probe DNA.
