UltraMag Magnetic Separator is available at Gentaur for Next week Delivery.
At GENTAUR a wide variety of Fluorescent Particle is offered:
The Fluorescent Particle Slides are very convenient to use and can be used for routine alignment and calibration of confocal fluorescent microscopes, laser scanning cytometers and other image systems.The FPS are manufactured by mounting fluorescent particles with one or multiple fluorophores in a permanent mounting medium.
SPHERO Magnetic Separators
Spherotech has several different designs of magnetic separators. These are used for separating both
Paramagnetic and Ferromagnetic particles from a suspension. These designs accommodate different size
tubes and other receptacles specific to various applications.
A combination of magnetic particles as solid phase and conventional enzyme immuno assay (EIA) microplate
technology offers significant advantages over the conventional EIA. Some of the advantages are listed below:
• Magnetic particles offer larger surface area and significantly faster reaction kinetics. As a result,
the total time to complete an assay is reduced.
• Microparticles are washed more efficiently leaving less residual reactants, thus, lowering background
signal and potentially improving sensitivity.
• Coating of magnetic particle is easier, gives a more uniform solid phase and helps to minimize lot-to-lot variation.
(A) The SPHEROTM FlexiMag Separator (Cat. No.: FMS-1000) accommodates tubes ranging from 1.5
mL microfuge tube to 200 mL tissue culture bottle. It uses interchangeable tube holders to secure different
size tubes and bottles. The separator comes with a set of three tube holders, Small, Medium and Large.
Additional holders can be purchased separately, if needed.
a) The Small holder holds up to four 1.5 mL microfuge or four 10 or 12x75 mm test tubes (8 total).
b) The Medium holder can hold two 15 mL centrifuge or two 16x100 mm tubes (4 total)
c) The Large holder can hold two 50 mL centrifuge tubes (4 total).
d) Two 200 mL tissue culture bottles directly without any tube holders.
The SPHEROTM FlexiMag Separator is ideal for any laboratory working with magnetic particles for cell separation,
immunoassay or affinity purification. It offers the flexibility to meet the small scale requirements of a research laboratory
and the large quantity processing of a commercial facility.
(B) The SPHEROTM FlexiMag Separator Jr. (Cat. No.: FMJ-1000) is designed for small scale use. It holds up to eight 1.5 mL microfuge tubes, 5 mL cryovials, 10x75 mm or 12x75mm tubes.
(C) The SPHEROTM MicroMag Separator (Cat No. MMS-2100) is designed to fit any 96-well plate with
round bottom, flat bottom or V bottom. The magnet will pull the particles to the corner of the well bottom to facilitate the aspiration of supernatant during the washing.
(D) The SPHEROTM HandiMag Separator is a 1"x2"x0.375" Neodymium-Iron-Boron high strength
magnet with nickel coating on the surface to prevent corrosion. The HandiMag can be used to separate the
magnetic particles in various containers such as microfuge tubes, test tubes or centrifuge tubes by holding the magnet
against the wall of containers by hand or with a rubber band.
(E) The SPHEROTM UltraMag Separator (Cat. No.: UMS-3000) and SPHEROTM UltraMag DW Separator (Cat. No.: UMDS-1000) are designed to facilitate the washing of magnetic particles in the Magnetic Particles Enzyme Immunoassay (MPEIA) using 96-well plates.
The magnetic pegs of UltraMag Separator fit between the wells underneath the 96-well plate. The microplate is
read in an appropriate microtiter plate reader by loading the microplate with the attached UltraMag Separator into
the reader. The magnets ensure that the magnetic particles stay out of the light beam passing through the bottom of the
well and corresponding holes in the UltraMag Separator.
