Dynabeads Magnetic Beads
Dynabeads products center around the goals to provide reliable and reproducible results for the purification and analysis of cells, proteins, exosomes, DNA, RNA, and other molecules. Dynabeads magnetic beads and products deliver highly cited results in the research industry across multiple application areas. Meanwhile, Thermo Fisher Scientific provides exceptional service and support backed by over 30+ years of knowledge and expertise.
Dynabeads magnetic beads come in several sizes and different surface functionalities for use in a wide variety of applications. Some beads are precoupled with a biomolecule (ligand). The ligand can be an antibody, protein or antigen, DNA/RNA probe, or any other molecule with an affinity for the desired target (Figure 1). Ready-to-use Dynabeads products and kits are available for many applications. For assays that require flexibility, a range of Dynabeads products with specific characteristics are available.
Learn more about application areas and how Dynabeads products can help your research.
Cell isolation consists of isolating your cell population of interest. Dynabeads kits can be used for positive cell isolation, negative cell isolation, or cell depletion.
Dynabeads products can help activate and expand naïve and memory T cells, T cell clones, regulatory T cells, natural killer T (NKT) cells, and cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) from mouse and human samples.
Exosomes are small vesicles that carry and transport RNA and protein. Dynabeads exosome kits and reagents are used for the isolation, detection, and analysis of exosomes.
Streptavidin is a small protein with high affinity. Dynabeads streptavidin magnetic beads are used in the isolation of cells, isolation of proteins, nucleic acid capture, mRNA synthesis, and NGS workflows.
Surface-activated magnetic beads are used to immobilize a target ligand for protein capture from a sample. Dynabeads magnetic beads with different surface functionalities, such as tosylactivated, carboxylic acid, amine, or epoxy are available for isolation of proteins, target nucleic acids, and cells.
Magnetic bead separation using Dynabeads products consists of three simple steps:
No centrifugation or columns are required. The Dynabeads magnetic separation protocol is scalable and easily adapted to automated handling systems.

|Dynabeads Biotin Binder||PBMC, tissue digests, blood||Isolate any cell from any species. This kit binds all biotinylated antibodies and is our most flexible secondary product for cell isolation or depletion.|
|Dynabeads Sheep anti-Rat IgG||PBMC, tissue digests, blood||Isolate any cell type from any species excluding rat to use with your preferred primary IgG rat antibody. Ideal for positive isolation, negative isolation, or depletion of cells.|
|Secondary-coated||Dynabeads Pan Mouse IgG||PBMC, tissue digests, blood||A flexible secondary product for cell isolation or depletion. It will bind all subclasses of mouse IgG and is Fc specific. Requires less antibody and has shown no cross reactivity to human, rat, hamster, goat, rabbit, and guinea pig IgG.|
|CELLection Pan Mouse IgG||PBMC, tissue digests, blood||Use with any mouse IgG to positively isolate cells from any species except mouse. Beads can be removed after isolation to leave pure and viable cells for use in any application.|
|Dynabeads Sheep anti-Mouse IgG||PBMC, tissue digests, blood||Isolate any cell type from any species except mouse. For use with your primary mouse IgG1, IgG2a, or IgG2b antibody of choice. Ideal for positive isolation, negative isolation, or depletion of cells. Also available in clinical research grade as Dynabeads ClinExVivo Sheep anti-Mouse IgG.|
|Dynabeads Goat anti-Mouse IgG||PBMC, tissue digests, blood||Isolate any cell type from any species except mouse. For use with your primary IgG mouse antibody of choice. Ideal for positive isolation, negative isolation, or depletion of cells.|
|Dynabeads Rat anti-Mouse IgM||PBMC, tissue digests, blood||Isolate any cell type from any species except mouse. For use with your primary mouse IgM antibody of choice. Ideal for positive isolation, negative isolation, or depletion of cells.|
|Dynabeads Sheep anti-Rabbit IgG||PBMC, tissue digests, blood||Isolate any cell type from any species except rabbit. For use with your primary rabbit antibody of choice. This product can be used for eukaryotic cells.|
|Surface-activated||Dynabeads M-450 Epoxy||PBMC, tissue digests, blood||Hydrophobic naked beads with glycidyl ether (epoxy) reactive groups. Ideal for coupling of antibodies for cell applications. Coupling reactions can be performed at neutral pH, with 24-hour incubation at room temperature. Also available in clinical research grade as Dynabeads ClinExVivo Epoxy.|
|Dynabeads M-450 Tosylactivated||PBMC, tissue digests, blood||Hydrophobic naked beads with p-toluenesulphonyl (tosyl) reactive groups. For coupling of antibodies for cell applications. Coupling reactions can be performed at neutral pH although high pH and incubation at 37°C will promote covalent binding.|
Dynal is built on a breakthrough that revolutionized the separation of biological materials. In 1976, the Norwegian professor John Ugelstad first succeeded in making spherical polystyrene beads of uniform size—only previously achieved by NASA in the weightless conditions of space. Another amazing achievement followed when the uniform beads were made magnetizable.
As the first mono-disperse solid-phase in solution, these pioneering innovations defined magnetic separation technology and allowed researchers to get lab results that were previously unattainable. A wide range of easy-to-use Dynabeads magnetic beads have since been developed, creating unlimited possibilities for biological discovery. Over the years, this Dynabeads magnetic bead technology has been used in a staggering range of applications within life sciences, biotech, and healthcare.
Exceptional product quality and reproducibility has always been the hallmark of Dynal. Inspired by the Norwegian invention of magnetic bead-based separation technology, we are committed to helping deliver consistency and reduce variability in your protocols.
