An experimental technique is discussed in which the magnetic susceptibility of immunomagnetically labeled cells can be determined on a cell-by-cell basis. This technique is based on determining the magnetically induced velocity that an immunomagnetically labeled cell has in a well- defined magnetic energy gradient. This velocity is determined through the use of video recordings of microscopic images of cells moving in the magnetic energy gradient. These video images are then computer digitized and processed using a computer algorithm, cell tracking velocimetry, which allows larger numbers (>103) of cells to be analyzed.
