We describe a microfluidic device for the determination of the concentration of magnetic micro- and nanoparticles, under continuous flow of the carrier fluid, by means of the Giant Magneto-Impedance effect (GMI). The microfluidic chip is composed of a 10 μl chamber situated on top of the GMI sensing material, which is inserted in a microstrip transmission line for the impedance measurements. Tests have been performed using both ferromagnetic and superparamagnetic types of particles in liquid dispersion. The results show a promising sensitivity in the case of the ferromagnetic particles but reveal a great number of detection problems that must be overcame before the prototype become functional.
