Capillary magnetophoresis of human blood cells and their magnetophoretic trapping in a flow system.


The performance of a capillary magnetophoretic device was improved by enhancing the magnetic field gradient using a pair of small iron tips attached to the Nd-Fe-B magnets. The magnetophoretic intensity, B(dB/dx), was determined as a function of distance along the gap between the tips from the magnetophoretic velocity of a 3 microm polystyrene microparticle… (More)
