Abstract

We present experiments and simulations of magnetic separation of magnetic beads in a microfluidic channel. The separation is obtained by microfabricated electromagnets. The results of our simulations using FEMLAB and Mathematica are compared with experimental results obtained using our own microfabricated systems. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
