This study investigates the ability of two different magnet arrays to capture magnetic nanoparticles from a flow system located at different distances from the magnet face. The magnet fields and gradients and hence magnetic forces were simulated using FEMM software. MR Images were acquired to qualitatively assess the trapping which were compared with quantitative iron concentrations measured using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry.
