The DynaMag™-96 Side Magnet is optimized to pull all types of Dynabeads™ (range 1–4.5 µm in diameter) to the sides of PCR tubes or to the sides of wells in 96-well plates. Designed for both automation platforms (e.g., Tecan) and manual workflows, this magnet is not compatible with PCR tubes but is compatible with PCR-strips and 96-well plates (200 µL), non-skirted and half-skirted.
Efficient mixing without sample handling This magnet has an extra column (13 total). This enables sample mixing simply by shifting the 96-well plate back and forth from the right-most position to the left-most position. This shifting draws the beads back and forth through the sample and allows mixing to be achieved without handling, promoting faster processing and less sample handing-induced variation.
Handling volume When used in combination with the DynaMag™-96 Bottom magnet on an automation platform, the two magnets allow for significant volume changes through a workflow. • High wash volumes: DynaMag™-96 Side Magnet • Low elution volumes: DynaMag™-96 Bottom magnet
