Single Place Magnetic Stand (for one 1.5 mL tube)

The Ambion® Single Tube Magnetic Stand accommodates one 1.5 mL microfuge tube. With this stand, as with any magnetic stand, centrifugation is replaced by the attraction between capture beads in a solution and the magnet in the stand, resulting in the beads collecting on one side of the microfuge tube. Thus, the captured species (e.g., mRNA) is quickly and efficiently separated from the solution's other components.

DynaMag™-5 Magnet

The DynaMag™-5 Magnet is intended for use with Dynabeads® for the immunomagnetic separation of cells. The DynaMag™-5 magnet accommodates tubes from 11–16 mm in diameter (e.g., flow cytometry tubes and most blood collection tubes), with an optimal working volume of 1–5 mL. The magnet holds 8 tubes and is compatible with all Dynabeads® (1–4.5 µM in diameter).

When performing cell separation using Dynabeads®, a DynaMag™ magnet is required. Different magnets are optimized for different working volumes and tube sizes. See our complete overview of the DynaMag™ magnets.

The DynaMag™-5 magnet contains the highest magnetic material available on the market, and thus separates any Dynabeads® quickly, efficiently, and consistently. The DynaMag™-5 magnet is small, easy to handle, and helps ensure efficient separation of up to 8 cell samples simultaneously.
