One Magnet Plate for Many Applications

Almost any 96-well microplate, any robotic platform

Large sample volumes, low elution volumes

Powered by Solid-Core Ring Magnets

  • Actually made quite a difference in the yield of our NGS libraries.  The ring formed by the magnet is lower on in the well, which facilitates the resuspension of the beads in the elution steps.

    Top notch product! Definitely worth the extra bucks!

  • Proprietary Solid-Core ring magnet technology

    At the heart of it all!

  • Powerful Solid-Core magnets and integrated Spring Cushion Technology

    Automation-friendly, rapid bead separation

Key Features of the Magnum FLX®

  • Solid-Core ring magnets enable the fastest separation
  • Low to high reaction volumes
  • Elution volumes as low as 10 μL
  • Accommodates most 96-well microplate types
  • Universal liquid handler compatibility
  • Integrated Spring Cushion Technology

Fastest Separation & Resuspension of Beads

The Magnum FLX plate 96- well magnet combines the high-performing features of all Alpaqua magnet plates with new Solid-Core ring magnets. The increased magnetic material and the lower location of the magnetic ring makes this our strongest and fastest 96-well magnet plate.

The universal nature of the Magnum FLX magnet plate and high level of performance provide for better results while directly translating into time and cost savings.

Up to 4.5x Faster Separation

No other single magnet plate enables rapid separation of samples up to 2 mL in volume and elution in as little as 10 µl. The unique geometry and strength of Solid-Core ring magnets in the Magnum FLX magnet plate can facilitate up to 4.5x faster separation than our 96S Magnet Plate.

Charts below show percent recovery versus time
Various volumes of a magnetic bead reagent were added to a standard 96-well PCR or deep-well microplate, respectively, and placed on the Magnum FLX, Magnum EX, 96S Super Magnet or LE Magnet Plate. Percent recovery over time was determined using spectrophotometry.


Designed with Automation in Mind

SBS footprint and elevated base for maximum liquid handler 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
