Magnetic measurement systems developed for cellular bioassay applications are limited in sensitivity and resolution. Significant improvements can be made using a microsystems approach. Our goal is to develop microfluidic systems and instrumentation for magnetic bioassays with the sensitivity and resolution necessary for high-throughput single-cell measurements. Proposals developing integrated microsystems with microfabricated magnets, magnetic field coils, and novel magnetic sensors interfaced to microfluidic environments to achieve these goals are encouraged. Our focus is on measurements of bioendogenous magnetism. In particular, we are interested in new tools for measuring genetically encoded biomagnetism in living cells.
