  • Ivo Šafarík
  • Mirka Šafaríková


A short review of possible applications of magnetic separation, labelling and targeting techniques in biochemistry and biotechnology (including environmental technology) is presented. These techniques, employing a variety of magnetic sorbents, carriers and modifiers, can be used for the immobilization, isolation, modification, detection, determination and removal of a variety of biologically active compounds, xenobiotics, cellular organelles and cells, both in the laboratory and industrial scale.
