Generating Magnetic Fields for Your Needs

Magnetic Tools for Remote Manipulation 

in engineering, biology and medicine

MagnebotiX produces and markets the MFG-100, MFG-100-i magnetic field generating systems developed in the Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems at the ETH Zurich, Switzerland. The MFG system is capable of generating a wide variety of static or varying magnetic fields. With our system, users carry out research on magnetic field-dependent phenomena and develop applications for magnetic microrobots. The versatile MFG-100 & MFG-100-i can produce fields to activate modes as diverse as field gradient response, stick-slip or rolling motions, and flagellar swimming.

The MAGIC touch -  MagnebotiX Generators for Innovative Control

Versatile magnetic field generators - small, medium and large; upright, inverted or angled – whatever suits your needs.

Our magnetic field generators are versatile and the ROS-based MBX PRO can do a lot, but we all have our own ideas and unique wishes. If you would like our advice on your  experimental design or how to realize your specific programming needs we would be glad to help. If requested we can even prepare tailor-made software solutions on a contract basis. Be it about hardware or software, please contact us with any questions you have.

Customisable Software

Our new software is based on the open-source Robot Operating System (ROS). Users can access all the functions of our magnetic field generators without the need to buy further software packages and can do the programming in the computer language of their choice, such as C++, Matlab® or Python.

Online Support

Need help getting started or with an unexpected problem? Get in touch and we will arrange an online call or a TeamViewer session with one of our experts and go through it live with you.

Consulting Solutions

About us

We've Come a Long Way

MagnebotiX was formed in Q2 2014 and is headquartered in Zurich. Our team of world class researchers and engineers is passionate about the development and production of magnetic manipulation systems, including magnetic field generators and micromagnetic agents. With years of expertise in the field, our products support both fundamental and applied scientific and engineering research. Taking advantage of the transmission of both power and guidance through applied magnetic fields, our systems provide wireless tools to accomplish challenging micromanipulation tasks. They are also used to control untethered mechanical probes in otherwise inaccessible places and for targeted cargo delivery in minimally invasive biological studies.

What our customers have to say about us..

"The MagnebotiX system has been an invaluable tool for us to characterize the performance of our magnetic microbots.  The ability to apply precise gradient and/or rotating fields at prescribed frequencies and strengths provided great insights for characterizing and optimizing the microrobot performance for a variety of test conditions and environments. "
