Magnet Plate Selector

Alpaqua magnet plates are like no other magnet plates on the market.

A diverse line of 24-, 48-, 96- and 384-well magnet plates engineered for robust and reliable magnetic separation for a wide range applications, from genomics to proteomics, and for low to high- throughput research and clinical labs.

Benefits of Ring Magnets

Ring magnets have been used for over 20 years in magnetic bead extractions due to their many benefits over other magnet types, such as posts and bars:

  • Dedicated magnetic contact for each well means fewer edge effects and greater uniformity of results.

  • Immobilized beads are spread over a larger area, improving resuspension and elution.

  • Near universal microplate compatibility.  Allows users to have optimal performance with many microplate types. Saving the cost and confusion of purchasing dedicated magnets for each plate type.

Spring Cushion Technology

Magnet plates 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 pipetting.

  • Minimizes tip occlusion & head contamination

  • Improves pipetting consistency

  • Maximizes sample recovery & reagent usage

  • Simplifies automation method development and execution

  • Protects instruments & consumables
