Magnetically driven gene delivery provides a valuable approach for a single cell transfection. Therapeutic genes can be manipulated by conjugating them to magnetic nanoparticles. The magnetic force required for the manipulation of such complexes can be provided by an electromagnetic micro-actuator designed as micro pole row. The analytical calculations, simulations, and the thin-film fabrication of this micro pole row were carried out previously [1]. This paper presents characterization results of the first microactuator fabrication batch.
