In recent researches in medicine and the pharmaceutical sciences, the magnetic separation technology using nanosized ferromagnetic particle is essential. For example, in the field of cell engineering, magnetic separation of nanosized ferromagnetic particles is necessary, but separation technology of nanosized particle using magnetic force has not been established. One of the reasons is that magnetic force acting on the object particles decreases as particle diameter becomes small, and makes magnetic separation difficult. In this study, magnetic force acting on the separation object was enlarged by the combination of superconducting magnet and the filter which consists of ferromagnetic particle. As a result of particle trajectory calculation and magnetic separation experiment, it was confirmed that the ferromagnetic particles of 15nm in diameter can be trapped in the magnetic filter under an external magnetic field of 0.5T. The ferromagnetic particles of 6nm in diameter which could not be separated under the same condition could also be rapped under 2.0T of external magnetic field.
