Abstract

We demonstrate an on-chip particle activity sorter, focused on iron concentration and based on magnetophoresis. This device was used for fast sorting of stepwise homogenously distributed [Fe]s. The preliminary results are very encouraging. We show that we can sort particles on magnetic moment, with a spread of a factor of four. XRF measurements confirm that the spread in magnetic moment is due to an increase in [Fe] concentration. This results fits well with particle trajectory simulations.
