Abstract

In this paper the magnetic nanoparticle filling procedure of microchambers is investigated. In the microchambers enzyme-substrate reactions are performed. The enzyme is immobilized to the surface of the nanoparticles while the substrate is present as a solution in the fluid. The magnetic nanoparticles are anchored in the chambers with the help of permanent magnets over the chamber. In the current work the magnetic field and then the nanoparticle filling procedure is simulated with the open source software OpenFOAM. The goal is to give prediction of the nanoparticle distribution in the chamber as the further reaction is a dependent of it.
