Magnetic rack for 5 mL tubes for DNA, RNA and other biomolecules purification
[cat. no. 1044]
A separator for purifying DNA, RNA, or other biomolecules with magnetic beads. Designed to hold 5 mL "Falcon" or "Eppendorf" centrifuge tubes.
It contains the strongest possible neodymium magnets, which effectively pull magnetic beads from the suspension towards the side of the tube, clearing the solution within a few minutes. Beads accumulate near the wall, somewhat above the bottom of the tube, so you can easily pipette all the liquid out without worrying about accidentally uptaking any beads.
To use, insert your 5 mL tube into the rack and wait for a few minutes until the solution clears.
The rack will also fit 15 mL tubes, but the effective separation will only occur at volumes of 6 mL and below.
Works with magnetic beads for DNA purification, as well as with any purification kits, including Dynabeads, Ampure beads, and others.
Great for many applications, for example, purification of a PCR product or selecting DNA strands of a specific size from the DNA library.
