Automated Immunoprecipitation in 40 min using Dynabeads and KingFisher Flex

For IP, KingFisher instruments with Dynabeads offer the best balance of high yield and reproducibility with low nonspecific binding and cost, which is one reason why they have become the gold standard for immunoprecipitation using magnetic beads.
