The Magnum FLX24 universal, 24-well magnet plate, employs solid-core technology with concentric ring magnet architecture that enables up to 30% faster separation times and the ability to elute in as little as 40 μl.  This enables unprecedented flexibility and performance for large volume, magnetic bead-based extractions of nucleic acids or proteins with the maximized quality and speed you’ve come to expect from Alpaqua magnet plates

  • Alpaqua’s Magnum FLX®24 magnet plate is an ideal solution for automated cfDNA extraction workflows. It effectively pulls down our magnetic beads from large volumes (≥10mL), plus the design allows for lower elution volumes enabling purification of higher cfDNA concentrations which is crucial for some downstream analyses.

  • Unprecedented flexibility and performance for large volume and low elution volume magnetic bead-based extractions of nucleic acids or proteins.

  • The unique design of the solid-core ring magnets sequesters beads closer to the well bottom enabling elution volumes as low as 40 µL and eliminating the need for additional downstream concentration steps.

  • Contains integrated Spring Cushion Technology for improved automated pipetting consistency and maximized sample recovery.

  • Unique corner brackets make it compatible with virtually any type of 24-well plate.

Key Features of the Magnum FLX®24

  • Separate large volumes up to 30% faster
  • Ideal for use with many liquid types including viscous blood and serum samples
  • Elution volume as low as 40 μL
  • SBS footprint and automation-friendly
  • Universal 24-well microplate compatibility – round bottom, conical bottom, and pyramid bottom deep-well plates
  • Integrated Spring Cushion Technology enables maximized sample aspiration

The Magnum FLX 24 works well with an increasing number of large volume isolation applications that require effective recovery of magnetic particles from viscous solutions such as lysed whole blood, protein extracts, tissue lysates, and other biological fluids, and that require low elution volumes.

The Magnum FLX®24 Difference!

Liquid Volume (mL) Separation Time, MagPlate 24 (Mins) Separation Time, Magnum FLX24 (Mins) % Decrease in Pull Down Time
2 6.5 4.5 31
5 15.5 10.5 32
8 22 16 27

Typical bead separation times on the Magnum FLX24 are 30% faster than using the Alpaqua MagPlate 24. Additionally, the solid-core ring magnets pull beads closer to the well bottom, enabling elution volumes as low as 40 μL and eliminating the need for additional downstream concentration steps.



SBS footprint and elevated base for broad compatibility, and integrated Spring Cushion Technology

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

Magnum FLX®24 FAQs

Is the Magnum FLX24 compatible with the 16 mm tube rack (A000260)?

It is not. The center-to-center distance of the magnet plate is 18 mm (standard for 24 well plates), on the tube rack it is 20 mm. The tube rack was designed for 15 ml centrifuge tubes, and the threaded part of the tubes is 19.30 mm in diameter.
