A special focused magnet, designed for magnetic targeted drug delivery, was constructed. Calculations of the adhesion condition for a magnetic fluid drop in a magnetic field with the obtained design have shown that the constructed focused magnet generates a sufficient magnetic force for capturing a magnetic drop on the vessel wall. Figs 7, Refs 4.
