Magnetic bioseparation is an important area of biotechnology. Various techniques are used with a wide range of possible applications in bioscience research. Magnetic micro- or nanospheres can be functionalized with appropriate ligands, such as antibodies, with a high affinity to the target, like cells, bacteria or DNA/RNA. In order to realize magnets with efficient separation capabilities, it is important to have a strong force FM acting on the magnetic bodies. FM is proportional to the product of the magnetic field and the field gradient. Many permanent magnets on the market have large magnetic fields, but relatively weak field gradients. GIAMAG magnets have unique and patented designs that produce both very large magnetic fields and high field gradients, resulting in the most forceful magnetic separators available on the market.
