Magnetic rack for DNA, RNA purification; for 100-250 microliter PCR tubes, fits 24 tubes, with removable magnets
[cat. no. 1018b]
Our magnetic separator is the perfect tool for purifying DNA, RNA, or other biomolecules with magnetic beads. Designed to fit PCR tubes with conical bottoms, which usually fit 100-250 uL of liquid. This separator uses the strongest neodymium magnets available to quickly and effectively pull magnetic beads from your sample suspension. Depending on the viscosity of your suspension, it takes seconds to a couple of minutes to clear the solution from the magnetic beads.
Within a minute, the beads will accumulate near the side of the tube, allowing you to easily pipette out your liquid without the risk of accidentally taking up any beads. This separator is compatible with any purification kits based on paramagnetic beads, making it a versatile tool for many applications, such as purifying PCR products or selecting DNA strands of a particular size from a DNA library.
In addition, our Magnetic Separator features removable magnets, which allow you to resuspend beads in all your tubes simultaneously using a vortex mixer, instead of having to remove and vortex each tube individually.
You can position the magnets either upper or lower related to the test tubes, depending on the liquid levels in your tubes. If you work with small volumes, you can have magnets close to the tube’s bottoms. For large sample volumes, it is better to have magnets upper, close to the middle of the tubes.
Our magnetic separator features a unique design of tube slots, ensuring a snug and secure fit for your test tubes. The tubes are inserted or removed from the rack very smoothly, however. The perfect fit prevents any movement of the tubes when they are being opened and closed, preventing disturbance of the pellet.
Additionally, the rack is designed to hold the tubes at the perfect angle, ensuring they are as close as possible to the magnets for effective separation.
Invest in our Magnetic Separator and streamline your sample purification process for faster, more efficient, and more convenient results.
