Immunicon has been making magnetic nano-particles, or ferrofluids, and devices for magnetic collection since
1984. In that time our scientists have become proficient at reproducibly manufacturing these particles, as well as
using them to manipulate all kinds of biological substances. Our engineers have optimized the devices needed for
magnetic collection, uncovering new magnetic phenomena in the process. We have learned to use our
nano-particles to separate specific cell types from complex mixtures, such as whole blood, tissues or tumors. We
can separate cells and form sheets of single layers of cells, or even a single-file line of cells. We have also used our
materials for immunoassays, PCR preparation, and viral detection. Much of this technology has been patented, then
licensed to major diagnostic and pharmaceutical corporations for use. Now, Immunicon has decided to make our
expertise in manufacturing magnetic particles available to the researchers who do their own cellular separations and
