Abstract

See full text

Compositions and methods are disclosed which enhance the microscopic observation and analysis of biological entities such as cells, bacteria and viruses by eliminating interfering magnetic clusters created by naturally occurring aggregators of colloidal magnetic particles. Additionally means for significantly enhancing the magnetic isolation of low antigen density target cells from biological samples are disclosed.
