Abstract : Sorting of particles of different species dissolved or suspended in an electrically conductive fluid, such as buffer solution, can be accomplished by subjecting them to forces which will tend to set them in motion with speeds differing from one species of particle to another. Two types of moving forces will be considered in this paper: (1) Electrostatic forces causing electrophoretic migration and (2) electromagnetic forces giving rise to electromagnetophoresis. In the former case we shall employ a magnetic field to cause a motion of the buffer solution (which will stabilize it against thermal convection) rather than to move the particles relative to the solution.
