Current research on methods to target chemotherapy drugs in the human body includes the investigation of biocompatible magnetic nano-carrier systems, e.g. magnetic liquids such as ferrofluids. The aim of our work was to construct a focused magnet, which enables to achieve maximal magnetic force in deeper position, to map its magnetic field and to find the adhesion condition for a magnetic fluid drop in magnetic field with obtained design.
