The magnet separator is optimized for efficient magnetic separation of magnetic beads in sample. The Magnetic Separator is specifically for use in Sansure Mag kits protocols with magnetic beads.
The Magnetic Separator consists of a magnetic base station and a removable tube rack. The tube rack can hold up to 24 1.5mL microcentrifuge tubes. The tube rack fits onto the magnetic base station in two different positions associating the row of 12 NdFeB magnets with a single row of 12 tubes for simple and easy ‘on the magnet’ and ‘off the magnet’ sample processing.
Base Station Dimensions: 9 cm x 10 cm x 10.5 cm
Tube Rack Dimensions: 10 cm x 16 cm x 15.5 cm
Base Station Material: N50M NdFeB magnets
Tube Rack Material: Polycarbonate
The Magnetic Separator is compatible with alcohol but not compatible with strong acid and strong alkali. Cares should be taken to avoid chlorination.
The tube rack fits onto the base station in two positions bringing a different row of tubes adjacent to 12 NdFeB magnets. To perform magnetic separation of 12 tubes placed in a row on the tube rack, place the tube rack onto the magnetic base station adjacent to the line of magnets (‘on the magnet’position). In the ‘on the magnet’ position, all 12 magnets are aligned with the 12 tubes on the tube rack allowing magnetic bead separation. The magnetic bead pellet forms on the side of each tube allowing easy removal of the supernatant without disturbing the pellet . For the ‘off the magnet’ position, move the tube rack away from the magnet.
