The Magnetic Systems (MagSys) group, led by associate professor Mikkel Fougt Hansen, provides magnetic functionality in lab-on-a-chip systems at the Department of Micro- and Nanotechnology, Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and carries out research in technological aspects of magnetism. Our current primary goal is to make and apply microsystems for manipulating and detecting micrometersized magnetic beads used for bioanalysis. Our approach is to base designs on careful theory and simulations, to quantitatively characterize the obtained results to the extent possible and to apply the systems on relevant biological problems. In addition, we also carry out research in magnetic nanoparticles. For the magnetic characterization, we use a state-of-the-art Vibrating Sample Magnetometer.
