384 Post Magnet Plate

Magnet plate designed for 384-well PCR plates

Alpaqua 384 Post Magnet Plate


The Alpaqua 384 Magnet Plate contains strong, Neodymium-Iron-Boron (NdFeB) post magnets for efficient magnetic bead separations with automation in mind. They have an SBS footprint to fit into standard liquid handler plate nests, plate hotels and stackers as well as gripper grooves on the long sides to provide space for robotic arms or grippers when moving microplates on and off the magnet plates.

  • Optimized for robotic access
  • Post magnets for use with high density PCR plates
  • Strong NdFeB magnets for efficient bead capture
  • 15 µl elution volume
  • Compatible with common magnetic bead chemistries and protocols for product and application flexibility
  • Integrated spring cushion technology for complete liquid removal without tip occlusions

    Magnet plate designed for 384-well PCR plates
    SKU: A001222

Magnet plate designed for 384-well PCR plates. 96 strong post magnets reliably pull paramagnetic beads out of solution and to the side of the wells where they will not be disturbed by pipetting tips entering the wells. Robotic-friendly.

The 384 Post Magnet Plate contains 96 Neodymium-Iron-Boron (NdFeB) post magnets - one for each group of four wells. It is designed for 384 well PCR plates. We strongly recommend rigid plates (dual-component-plates) because simple PP-plates may warp - sometimes right out of the box, but certainly after thermocycling.

Rigid 384 -well PCR plates are available from three vendors:

Bio-Rad Hard-Shell® plates

Eppendorf twin.tec® plates

4titude FrameStar® plates

The ABgene Diamond Plate AB-1111 that we used to recommend here is no longer available, but the three models above all work very well.

Like all Alpaqua magnet plates, the 384 Post Magnet Plate contains patented* spring cushion technology to greatly simplify supernatant removal and eluate transfer.

The 384 Post Magnet plate contains Integrated Spring Cushion Technology so you can get that last microliter without bending tips! Spring Cushion Technology allows the microplate to give was when tips come in contact with a well bottom, thus compensating for physical tolerances between labware and pipettors that can compromise precision aspiration.
