Invitrogen DynaMag magnets isolate any target in combination with Invitrogen Dynabeads magnetic beads. Your waiting time is minimized as these powerful magnets quickly pull your Dynabeads-bound target to the tube wall. The DynaMag magnets help ensure optimal working positions and are functionally adapted to suit your workflow.

How to use magnets to separate cells

Dynabeads are used to perform gentle tube-based isolation and purification of small molecules including cells. The DynaMag magnetics are designed for different applications and needs. Watch the video on how to use magnets for cell separation.

Magnetic stands and racks for Dynabeads products

MagnetOptimal working volumeDescription

 DynaMag-2
Removable rack for vortexing, rotation, or manual sample shaking

10 µL–2,000 µL

(This magnet replaces the Dynal MPC-S magnet)
  • Holds 16 (1.5–2 mL) microfuge tubes
  • 8 positions on each side of the rack
  • Top rack can be quickly removed from the magnet in the base, ready for vortexing, rotation or manual sample shaking. A center pin in the rack ensures uniform vortexing of all tubes.
  • Excellent control and visibility of your isolations
SampleRack for DynaMag-2
Removable plastic rack for handling and storage of sample tubes
 (see above)
  • The removable tube-holder plastic rack for the DynaMag-2 is also available as a separate item
  • An additional SampleRack minimizes the need to move tubes between racks
  • The SampleRack can be placed on the bench, in the fridge, or in the incubator

DynaMag-Spin
DynMag-Spin

10 µL–1,500 µL
  • Holds 6 (1.5 mL) microfuge tubes
  • Circular top rack can be quickly removed from the magnet in the base, ready for vortexing or manual sample shaking
  • Good control of your isolations

DynaMag-5
DynaMag-5

1 mL–5 mL
  • Flexible magnet: Handles many different tube sizes (11–16 mm in diameter, e.g. flow tubes and blood collection tubes) in a more functional way
  • More samples: Accommodates up to 8 tubes with sample volume from 1 to 5 ml
  • Removable SampleRack: The tubes can be kept in the same position during the entire isolation process and beyond, just lift the whole SampleRack on/off the magnet base during handling. Buy an extra SampleRack and double the capacity

SampleRack for DynaMag-5

(see above) 
  • The removable tube-holder plastic rack for the DynaMag-5 is also available as a separate item
  • Additional SampleRacks may be useful when there are multiple users of the DynaMag-5 magnet or when processing more than 8 samples at a time
  • The SampleRack can be placed on the bench, in the fridge, or in the incubator
 DynaMag-15
Flip and use for 5 mL tubes!
1 mL–15 mL
  • Holds 4 standard 15 mL tubes
  • Can be used for any starting sample in combination with all types of Dynabeads
  • Good control and visibility of your isolations
  • We recommend DynaMag-5 for FACS tubes or blood collection tubes
 DynaMag-50
DynaMag-50
 5 mL–50 mL


(This magnet replaces the Dynal MPC-50 magnet)

  • Holds 2 x 50 mL tubes
  • Can be used for any starting sample in combination with all types of Dynabeads
  • Good control and visibility of your isolations

DynaMag-96 Side

DynaMag-96 Side

5 µL–200 µL

(This magnet replaces the Dynal MPC-9600 magnet)
  • Holds PCR-Style Strips & Plates:
    • PCR strips (8 & 12 well)
    • non-skirted 96-well plates
    • ½-skirted (200 µL) 96-well plates
    • 48 & 96 microtubes for the Applied Biosystems GeneAmp PCR System
  • Pulls beads to the side of each well
  • For manual & automated workflows
  • Footprint same as a 96-well plate
  • Features 13 columns
  • In conjunction with an automated platform, the 13th column enables sample mixing without physically interacting with the sample.This is performed by repeatedly shifting the plate from the left-most to the right-most position & vice-versa.

  • Holds PCR-Style Strips & Plates:
    • PCR strips (8 & 12 well)
    • non-skirted 96-well plates
    • ½-skirted (200 µL) 96-well plates
    • 48 & 96 microtubes for the Applied Biosystems GeneAmp PCR System
  • Pulls beads to the bottom of each well
  • For manual & automated workflows
  • Footprint same as a 96-well plate

 DynaMag-96 Side Skirted

DynaMag-96 Side Skirted

       (magnified below)DynaMag-96 Side Skirted

5 µL–200 µL
  • Holds skirted 96-well PCR-Style plates.
  • Pulls beads to the side of each well.
  • For automated workflow.
  • Footprint size same as a 96-well plate.

Also works with the following cell culture plates:
  • 96-well round bottom plates
  • 96-well flat bottom plates
  • 24-well plates
  • 12-well plates
  • 6-well plates
  • not recommended for use with 48-well plates

 DynaMag CTS

DynaMag CTS

  • For closed sterile blood bags
  • Scalable volumes: 50 mL to 330 mL in static separations. 
  • >10 L in continuous flow separations following T cell expansion protocols.
  • Positively isolate bead-bound cells e.g. for subsequent stimulation/ expansion of T cells with Dynabeads CD3/CD28 CTS, and for removal of the beads following the expansion protocol.
