Flat magnetic separator was used to separate magnetic bioaffinity adsorbents from litre volumes of suspensions. Both magnetic cross-linked erythrocytes and magnetic chitosan were efficiently separated; at least 95% adsorbent recovery was achieved at maximum flow rate (1680 ml min−1). Using this system low amounts of trypsin were concentrated from large sample volumes using magnetic erythrocytes as affinity adsorbent.
