Alpaqua Engineering Expands It’s Line of Automation-friendly Magnet Plates

With the Launch of the MIDI Magnet® Plate Enabling Rapid NGS Application Implementation

The new Alpaqua MIDI Magnet Plate is designed for use with the Abgene™ 0.8 mL Polypropylene 96-well deep well storage plate (AB-0859), often referred to as the “MIDI Plate”, and recommended in many NGS protocols.  This magnet plate streamlines genomic applications such as Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), DNA and RNA sample preparation, library construction and PCR clean up reactions.

The MIDI Magnet contains integrated Spring Cushion Technology for maximum sample recovery, improved pipetting accuracy, & fewer tip occlusions making this an ideal plate for high throughput, automated genomic applications.  While designed for automated separations, the MIDI Magnet is suitable for manual separations as well.
