The Magnetic 96-Well Separator is designed for fast and simple removal of supernatant from samples bound to magnetic particles and may be used manually or as an integrated part of an automated workstation. The Magnetic 96-Well Separator is an ideal tool for use in singleplex and multiplex biological assays based on the Luminex® xMAP® Technology. These assays make use of Luminex® MagPlex™, or magnetic microspheres, and the MAGPIX®, Luminex® 200™ or FLEXMAP 3D® instruments.

Note: It is recommended that the Magnetic 96-Well Separator be used with a standard 96-well flat-bottom plate such as Greiner, Cat. No. 655096 or equivalent (not provided).
• Achieve high, reproducible retention of magnetic bead-bound samples with the strong magnetic power of the Magnetic 96-Well Separator
• Increase sample recovery and purity vs. filter-based assays with magnetic bead-based assays
• Simplify and significantly reduce cellular assay time with Luminex® magnetic bead-based assays and the Magnetic 96-Well Separator

96-Well, High-throughput Access to the World of Magnetic Microspheres
The use of magnetic microspheres has become widespread in the fields of biology, biotechnology and other bio-medical disciplines. Applications include cell sorting, RNA and DNA isolation, preparation, purification and sequencing, as well as immunology and a wide variety of isolation techniques for biological entities. The Magnetic 96-Well Separator may be utilized in a broad range of applications.

Magnetic Beads Let You Do More with Your Time
Novex® brand assays for the MAGPIX® system are built on Luminex's MagPlex™, or magnetic microsphere beads, platform. These assays take advantage of the magnetic beads workflow that simplifies wash steps and reduces variability in results. They are compatible with both vacuum and magnetic wash stations as well as other Luminex® xMAP® platforms. The MAGPIX® system may also be used with other providers of Luminex® magnetic bead-based assays.

More Validation for Confidence in Your Results
Built on the xMAP® bead technology, the Novex® brand immunoassays are designed for the detection of both single or multiple analytes simultaneously in a single biological sample. MAGPIX® and other qualified assays from Thermo Fisher Scientific offer accurate analytical performance and efficient, easy-to-follow protocols. In addition, the quantitative analytical results obtained with Novex® brand multiplexing assays are routinely tested against matching ELISAs to assure correlative results.

Luminex® xMAP® Technology—effective and proven analytical tool
For the past 10 years, xMAP® technology has gained wide acceptance as a multiplex tool for use in a variety of applications, including protein expression profiling, focused gene expression profiling, and disease research. The Luminex® 200™ or FLEXMAP 3D® instruments use xMAP® technology by combining fluorescent bead-based assays with flow cytometry, two lasers, real-time digital signal processing and xPONENT® software to distinguish bead color (analyte) and assay signal strength (PE) fluorescence intensity.

MAGPIX® System—brings the power of multiplex to every lab
The MAGPIX® system is also based on xMAP® technology in a new instrument built on light-emitting diodes (LEDs) for excitation, a CCD camera for bead and analyte detection and high-speed digital signal processors. The MAGPIX® system is more compact and robust providing the most cost effective multiplexing tool available. Simple, out of the box set-up allows researchers to rapidly perform singleplex or multiplex assays of up to 50 targets in single biological samples. The MAGPIX® system is simple and easy to use—ideal for both new and experienced users alike.
