Magnetic separation techniques: their application to medicine.

Abstract

Whilst separation techniques relying on gravitational forces have become relatively sophisticated in their application to biology the same is not true for magnetic separation procedures. The use of the latter has been limited to the few cells which contain paramagnetic iron. However with the development of several different types of magnetic particles and selective delivery system (e.g. monoclonal antibodies) the use of magnetic separation techniques is growing rapidly. This review describes the different types of particles currently available, the magnetic separation technique applied to the different magnetic compounds and illustrates major uses to which magnetic separation procedures are currently applied in the area of biology and medicine.
