Beverly, Mass., 17 April, 2013 -- Alpaqua Engineering, LLC, a leading provider of innovative liquid handling accessories and magnet plates, announced today the release of the MAGNUM™ EX Universal Magnet Plate. The MAGNUM EX is the most recent addition to its comprehensive line of magnet plates used for magnetic bead-based nucleic acid purifications. The MAGNUM EX is a second generation magnet plate that replaces and greatly expands the microplate compatibility of the current 96M Magnum Plate, while maintaining its superior performance.
“Researchers routinely request a universal solution for magnetic bead separations. The addition of innovative corner brackets on the MAGNUM EX creates just such a solution by expanding the range of compatible microplates” says Olaf Stelling, owner of Alpaqua. “Most all 96-well microplates that are employed during magnetic bead-based purifications can be used with this new magnet plate. In addition, the MAGNUM EX is compatible with a wide array of robotic platforms, making it a truly universal magnet plate.”
