In the original publication of the article, Eq. 2 was incorrect.

The correct Eq. (2) should be as follows,
$${\vec {F}_m}={\mu _0}{V_b}({\vec {M}_b} \cdot \vec {\nabla }){\vec {H}_a}$$

In page 4 of 7 of the article id 170, line 6 of the first column, the scalar product was replaced by a cross product. The exact expression is as given below,

At low magnetic field, i.e. when Mb < < Ms (with Ms the saturation magnetization of the beads), Mb varies linearly with Ha and therefore the force scales with \((\overrightarrow{{H}_{a}}\cdot \overrightarrow{\nabla })\overrightarrow{{H}_{a}}\).
