We offer several magnet plates with different magnetic strengths. Their SBS footprint fits into standard liquid handler plate nests, plate hotels and stackers. With automation in mind the magnet plates come with gripper grooves on the long sides to provide space for robotic arms or grippers.
Ring shaped NdFeB magnets
Alpaqua 96-well magnet plates are equiped with strong ring shaped Neodymium-Iron-Boron (NdFeB) magnets. This leads to rapid magnetic bead segregation in a circle around the perimeter of each well bottom. therfore creating a bead-free area in the center of the well. This magnet plate allows for pipet tips to efficiently aspirate sample supernatant, wash fluids, or eluates.
