96R & 96S Magnet Plates

Alpaqua offers two (2) 96-well magnet plates, the 96R Ring Magnet Plate and the 96S Super Magnet Plate, which provide efficient magnetic bead separation for a variety of applications.

Plate Features
    • Integrated spring cushion technology for complete liquid removal without tip occlusion
    • Ring magnets provide for rapid bead capture and allow complete removal of supernatants, wash buffers and eluates from the well bottom
    • Optimized for robotic access
    • Strong NdFeB magnets for efficient bead capture
    • Compatible with common magnetic bead chemistries and protocols including NGS

96R & 96S Ring Magnets

The Alpaqua 96R and 96S magnet plates contain ring-shaped Neodymium-Iron-Boron (NdFeB) magnets which lead to rapid magnetic bead segregation in a circle around the perimeter of each well bottom. This leaves a bead-free area of several millimeters in diameter in the center of the well allowing pipet tips to efficiently aspirate sample supernatant, wash fluids, or eluates.  The 96S Magnet plate contains stronger magnets than the 96R, which allows for faster magnetic bead separation.

 

Integrated Spring Cushion Technology

All Alpaqua magnet plates contain integrated Spring Cushion Technology.  This technology allows plates to give way when tips come in contact with a well bottom, thus compensating for physical tolerances between labware and pipettors that can compromise precision aspiration.

 


Alpaqua 96R Ring Magnet Plate

The 96R is ideal for separation volumes up to 350 µl in 96-well PCR plates (skirted or non-skirted) and round-bottom microplates (e.g. Corning Costar 3795 series).

Alpaqua 96S Super Magnet Plate

The 96S contains stronger magnets for large volume separations of up to 2 ml, or for faster separations of smaller volumes. The 96S is also ideal for separation of more viscous samples, such as blood or serum.

Alpaqua 96-Well Ring Magnet Plates (96R/A001219, 96S/A001322, and 96M/A000250) are compatible with a variety of microplate types such as PCR plates, deepwell plates, U- & V-bottom plates and most skirted, non-skirted, and semi-skirted 96-well PCR plates. (One example of a PCR plate that does NOT work is the full-skirted Eppendorf® twin.tec 96 well PCR plate because the wells do not reach far enough into the magnet ring. The semi-skirted and non-skirted versions of this plate are fine.). This product is generally not recommended for use with flat bottom plates.

Below is a list of sample plates we have used over the years that work well. This list is not comprehensive. There are many plates not specifically listed below that are fully compatible with 96R, 96S, and 96M Magnet Plates. If you would like to use a plate that is not on the list, submit a sample to Alpaqua and we will test it.

All three 96-well ring magnet plates are mutually compatible - if a plate fits on one, it fits on all three.

This is brilliant, put my samples on and the beads scurry to the edges, meaning I can pipette out the supernatant and wash samples with ease.

I use this plate (96S) to prepare MiSeq libraries and to do any DNA/RNA bead based clean up. It is a wonderful magnet and works exceptionally well.

Work perfectly for preparing MiSeq samples. No reagents left, clear samples.

The 96S Magnet Plate is the shiggity-shiznit. It separates
magnetic particles from your solutions like it just doesn't even care about anything else. It separates those particles out RAW and HARD.

If you are using a magnetic bead-based SPRI nucleic acid extraction chemistry and you're not using one of these, you are WRONG.

After just a few minutes of settle time the magnetic beads form a ring at the well bottom, leaving an area of several millimeters diameter to remove supernatant without disturbing the beads. Settle times depend on sample volume and viscosity, magnet strength, and bead characteristics. Typical numbers are 2 - 15 minutes.

The 96M Magnum Plate contains our most powerful ring magnets for the 96 well format. The magnets are both bigger and stronger, making separations up to 40% faster when compared to the 96S Super Magnet Plate.
