The high power concentric NdFeB magnet design of the Magnum FLX24 magnet plate allows for larger volumes of sample input to be quickly and efficiently processed in a variety of 24 well deep well blocks. An increasing variety of large volume liquid processing workflows require the capability to effectively recover magnetic particles from viscous solutions such as lysed whole blood, protein extracts, tissue lysates, and many other biological fluids. The isolation of cell free DNA (cfDNA) from serum and plasma requires both the use of large liquid volumes and low elution volumes.
The Alpaqua Magnum FLX24 magnet plate is uniquely suited for all of these applications. Magnetic particle separation times are 30% faster than our standard MagPlate24 and sample elution volume is as low as 40uL. High volume viscous sample lysates are quickly and efficiently processed and isolated cfDNA is concentrated and ready for all downstream applications such as Next Generation sequencing or qPCR. In addition, the Magnum FLX24 magnet plate is designed to be compatible with most round, conical, and pyramid bottom 24 well deep well blocks, allowing the user maximum flexibility in labware choices.
Like all Alpaqua magnet plates, the Magnum FLX24 magnet plate has a standard SBS-footprint and contains integrated spring cushion technology for improved automated pipetting consistency and complete sample recovery.
