Dynabeads™ MPC™-1 (Magnetic Particle Concentrator) (Applied Biosystems™)

The MPC®-1 (Magnetic Particle Concentrator) holds one tube of variable diameter (10–30 mm, 5–50 mL tube). Optimal working volume: 5–50 mL. Magnetic particle concentrators are designed to obtain optimal binding of Dynabeads® with targets (e.g., cells, proteins, and nucleic acids).

Note that this magnet is for microbiology applications only, not for cell separations.

DynaMag™-2 Magnet

The DynaMag™-2 magnet is optimized for efficient magnetic separation of all types of Dynabeads® (range 1–4.5 µm in diameter) in small (<2 mL) sample volumes. The DynaMag™-2 magnet combines a strong magnetic attraction for efficient separations in standard microcentrifuge tubes with a flexible and smart ergonomic design.

• Optimal working volume: 10–2,000 µL
• Holds up to 16 standard 1.5–2 mL microcentrifuge tubes in numbered spaces
• Good control and visibility of your sample
• Top rack can be quickly removed from the magnet in the base, ready for resuspension, vortexing, rotation, or manual sample shaking

Flexible and ergonomic design
The magnet can be used with all types of Dynabeads® for efficient isolation of proteins and nucleic acids. The sample rack can be easily removed from the base magnet for resuspension, vortexing, rotation, or manual sample shaking. A center pin in the rack ensures equal vortexing of all tubes. The rack can also be removed and used to store tubes. The 16 numbered sample spaces make this magnet ideal for parallel handling of multiple samples. With 8 tube positions on each side of the rack you can easily scale your protocols to accommodate 96-well plate reactions.

Product notes
• This magnet is not compatible with the MX4 Mixer
• The removable sample rack is also available as a separate item (Cat. No. 123-22D). Purchasing an additional sample rack minimizes the need to move tubes between racks. The rack can be placed on the bench, in the refrigerator, or in the incubator.

DynaMag™-96 Side Magnet

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

50 mL Tube Magnetic Separator (Invitrogen™)

This Magnetic Separator is for use with the GeneCatcher™ gDNA 3 - 10 ml Blood Kit. The Magnetic Separator consists of a rack that holds 4 50-ml tubes in alignment with neodymium magnets for the efficient processing of DNA bound to magnetic beads.

GeneCatcher™ Technology is a novel magnetic bead-based technology that provides a method for reliably and efficiently purifying DNA without any centrifugation steps. The GeneCatcher™ gDNA Blood Kits facilitate the efficient and reliable extraction of genomic DNA (gDNA) from samples of human blood, even when the samples have been archived, poorly stored, or collected in the presence of anticoagulants such as EDTA, heparin, or citrate.

For Research Use Only. Not intended for human or animal therapeutic or diagnostic use.

DynaMag™-15 Magnet

The DynaMag™-15 magnet is optimized for efficient cell isolation using all types of Dynabeads® (range 1–4.5 µm in diameter) in standard 15 mL lab tubes. The DynaMag™-15 magnet holds 4 tubes and combines a strong magnetic attraction for efficient separations with a flexible and smart ergonomic design that ensures a comfortable working position. A tilting mechanism on the magnet enables flexibility while pipetting.

• Optimal working volume: 15 mL
• Holds 4 × 15 mL tubes
• Good control and visibility of your sample

For handling of smaller blood collection tubes, FACS tubes, or similar, see our DynaMag™-5 magnet.

Pathatrix™ Auto Cartridge (Applied Biosystems™)

The proprietary patented magnetic separation technology with which the Pathatrix® Auto Instrument performs pathogen enrichment and purification occurs within plastic disposable vessels loaded into a Pathatrix® Auto Cartridge. Each Pathatrix Auto Cartridge can be loaded and run independently of the others, and each Pathatrix Auto Instrument has slots for five cartridges.

Contaminated samples are first added to the consumable sample vessel. Paramagnetic beads, surface-modified for pathogen capture, are then added, and the sample vessel and attached elution vessel are loaded into the Pathatrix Auto Cartridge. The Pathatrix Auto Instrument uses magnets housed in the Pathatrix Auto Cartridge to capture the beads, and then efficiently recirculates the sample over the captured beads. Target organisms are retained by the immobilized beads, and after an automated washing and elution step, the isolated organisms are ready for downstream detection. The entire process is automated and takes only about 15 minutes.

Although the Pathatrix® Auto Instrument includes 5 Pathatrix® Auto Cartridges, this additional cartridge may be purchased, either as a replacement, or to provide the added convenience of being able to load a sample while others are running in the instrument.

A Pathatrix® Auto Cartridge Holder (ordered separately) serves as a stable platform for each cartridge during loading and transport.
