A method of fabrication produces one or more functional microparticles using a parallel pore working piece. In one embodiment, the method forms a particle that includes a segment for the oxidation of a biofuel (such as glucose) and the reduction of oxygen. The particle may be synthesized in a structure with defined and parallel, uniform, thin pores that completely penetrate the structure. Further, the functional microparticle may be configured to reside in a human or animal body or cell such that it may be self-contained fuel cell having an anode, a cathode, a separator membrane, and a magnetic component. In other embodiments, the functional microparticles may deliver energy or therapeutic materials in the body.

An apparatus and method for magnetic particle manipulation enables the particle to be rotated and translated independently using magnetic fields and field gradients, which produce the desired decoupled translational and rotational motion. The apparatus and the method for manipulation may be implemented in parallel, involving many particles. The rotational magnetic field used to induce rotational motion may be varied to induce particle motion, which is either in phase or out of phase with the rotational magnetic field. The magnetic fields and gradients described herein may be generated with permanent magnets, electromagnets, or some combination of permanent magnets and electromagnets.
