Human HaCaT cells, exposed for 24 h to a 1 mT (rms) 50 Hz sinusoidal magnetic field in a temperature-regulated solenoid, suffer detectable changes in their biochemical properties and shapes. By using infrared wavelength-selective scanning near-field optical microscopy, we observed changes in the distribution of the inner chemical functional groups and in the cell morphology with a resolution of 80-100 nm.
