Chemagic Magnetic Separation Module I

eagle-i ID


Resource Type

  1. Nucleic acid extraction/purification instrument


  1. Resource Description
    "In the Chemagic system, magnetic separation is achieved through the use of an electromagnet and separation heads with rods that can be magnetized. The metal rods are immersed into the magnetic bead suspension. When the electromagnet is switched on, the rods become magnetic and the beads are separated. To resuspend separated magnetic bead pellet, the magnet is switched off and a stirring motor to which all rods are connected is switched on. This leads to a very effective and gentle resuspension process resulting in separation products with both highest yields and purities."
