Abstract

Concerns dealing with the application of superparamagnetic ferrofluid as a drug carrier are studied both experimentally and theoretically. A dynamically controlled electromagnet experiment was designed to focus a stable ferrofluid trap at a specified distance. A theoretical magnetic driving force equation has been compared to experimental results for verification; verification was not achieved. Particle chaining avoidance theory is discussed based on previous research done by other sources.
