Magnetic tweezers are able to manipulate cells or biomolecules in applications associated with biological separation, medical treatment, and biosensor developments. In this work, a horizontal magnetic tweezer is designed, modeled and implemented. Finite element based numerical solvers are used for optimal designs. A model based on the first principals approach is derived and experimentally verified, which can be used in calibration and control implementations.
