NASA spent 3 billion on developing a zero grav pen for use in in space…the Russians used a pencil.
Likewise, as the biotech industry spends hundreds of millions on smart/nanotechnology devices to send medicines and cells to specific sites or organs…Cedars-Sinai uses a magnet and iron dust.

Sometimes, old school is definitely the way to go. -dg

ScienceDaily (Apr. 10, 2010) — Researchers at the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute have found in animals that infusing cardiac-derived stem cells with micro-size particles of iron and then using a magnet to guide those stem cells to the area of the heart damaged in a heart attack boosts the heart’s retention of those cells and could increase the therapeutic benefit of stem cell therapy for heart disease.
