Abstract

High Gradient Magnetic Separation (HGMS) for biological specimens is reviewed. Selective tagging for the enhancement of cell capture is discussed. A detailed survey of major improvements in HGMS techniques -- filter matrix designs and magnet designs aimed specifically at bench-top experiments in bioseparation -- is also given.
