This study considers capturing of FePt nanoparticle in a magnetic field when the particles are injected into a stream of flowing liquid. A roller pump is used to induce a flow of water at several flow rates to assess the growth of FePt aggregation near magnetic field source. The particles are injected into the system using a micro syringe pump at different flow rates. The aggregations are observed with a microscope. Subsequently some estimation is performed with respect to a magnetic hyperthermia, which is a part of a method for treating undesirable biological entities in blood vessels.
