Automated Magnetic Separations for Proteomics
Accelerate proteomics workflow throughput (HTS) using magnetic separations
Speed and sample purity are major concerns for proteomics researchers, and strategies to achieve higher throughput for sample-handling and data-processing are desired. Magnetic particles comprise a convenient solid support for a variety of assays and procedures based on affinity purification. Paramagnetic beads are especially well suited for automated procedures because instrumentation exists to easily mix, incubate and separate the particles in 96-well plates without columns or centrifugation. Such ease of manipulation enables rapid processing of many samples and seemless integration and compatibility with entire workflows.
Automation-validated Pierce Magnetic Beads
Thermo Scientific™ Pierce™ Magnetic Beads are high-performance, iron oxide, superparamagnetic particles that are derivatized with different ligands for use in a variety of affinity purification methods. The beads are designed and validate for use with automated magnetic particle processors, including high-throughput magnetic platforms. The beads also enable premium performance for simple benchtop applications using an appropriate magnetic stand.
