The perfect magnet for all your high- to ultra-high throughput genomic applications.

Spring Cushion Technology for critical liquid handler Z’ position compensation and maximized aspirated sample volume.

Automated magnetic bead separation like no other.

Key Features of Alpaqua’s 384 Post Magnet Plate

  • Optimized for robotic access
  • Strong NdFeB post magnets for efficient bead capture in high density PCR plates
  • 15 µl elution volume
  • Compatible with most magnetic bead chemistries and protocols
  • Integrated Spring Cushion Technology for maximized aspiration without tip occlusions

Focused on Automation

The Alpaqua 384 Post Magnet Plate is designed with automated high throughput usage in mind.  SBS footprint for broad compatibility, gripper grooves for easy robot access, and integrated Spring Cushion Technology.


For best results we recommend using rigid PCR microplates such as Bio-Rad Hard-Shell®, Eppendorf twin.tec®, 4titude FrameStar® microplates.

Why do I need Spring Cushion Technology?

Alpaqua microplates with integrated Spring Cushion Technology 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.

  • Protects instruments & consumables
  • Improves pipetting consistency
  • Maximizes usage of reagents & samples
  • Minimizes tip vacuum & head contamination
  • Accelerates automated method development
