In this work the interaction of lysozyme fibrils with magnetic particles has been studied by atomic force microscopy. The experiments were carried out for a better understanding of the binding process of such complex soft matter systems. The obtained results show that interaction between lysozyme fibrils and magnetic particles starts immediately after mixing them together. Moreover, the samples remain stable in duration of several days after preparation.
