The value of MagMAX CORE technology in your laboratory:


Labs shouldn’t have to wait for their sample preparation—it should keep pace with their testing needs. The new MagMAX CORE workflow offers:

  • Faster instrument processing times, allowing you to determine diagnostic results more quickly
  • Premixed washes that don’t require the addition of alcohols
  • Higher-quality nucleic acids, which may lead to less retesting and fewer workflow interruptions

The following graphs highlight the performance of MagMAX CORE compared to two other commercially available nucleic acid extraction kits, in detecting various pathogens from field samples, including oral fluid, whole blood, and in-pouch culture.


Labs want to work smarter, not harder. MagMAX CORE is optimized to help labs work more efficiently, enabling them to save time and money. Potential savings include:

  • Reduced plastics use, drastically limiting waste and costs
  • Room temperature reagents greatly improve product handling and save on storage space and costs
  • Complete workflows that address 14 unique sample types provide you with a universal solution
  • A single protocol adapted to multiple Thermo Scientific KingFisher magnetic particle processors unifies all workflows, regardless of throughput

Supported sample types:

  • Whole blood
  • Feces
  • Oral fluid
  • Animal, fecal & environmental swabs
  • Tissue / Organs
  • Milk
  • Hair follicles
  • Semen
  • Serum
  • Ear punches
  • Ear notches
  • Environmental samples
  • Biomed Diagnostics InPouch™ TF (Tritrichomonas foetus) culture
  • Plasma


The diagnostic testing environment is constantly evolving. Labs need a sample preparation solution that can grow with them. MagMAX CORE is designed to meet labs’ current and future testing needs. Features include:

  • A “CORE” chemical formulation designed to be the last sample preparation solution you may ever need to validate
  • Flexible modules that couple easily with the CORE chemistry, allowing the introduction of new applications without requiring new chemistries
  • New formulation and workflow that allow for downstream sequencing applications
