The test was run in Abgene AB-1127 half-deep square-well round bottom plates (max. volume 1.2 ml). The front sides of the plates were cut away for better visibility. The wells each contain 1 ml of undiluted Ampure® XP.
This is more viscous than the concentration af Ampure typically used in cleanup reactions, which is 1.8 parts Ampure in 1 part sample; the purpose here was to show the difference between the two magnet plates. The video shows the settling of the beads in time lapse mode at about 1 sec/ minute, i.e. at 60 times actual speed. The time stamp at the bottom shows the actual time.
The sequence starts at 15:54. On the Magnum Plate, the last discernable bead clouds disappear at 16:09, i.e. after 15 minutes. The same state on the Super Magnet is not reached until 16:18, after a total settle time of 24 minutes. Again, this is undiluted Ampure; actual reactions will settle faster.
