The LOABeads MagSep series of laboratory magnetic separators have been optimized for use with LOABeads magnetic beads and are ideal for most bioseparation applications. The larger units are designed for durability with a lacquered plastic shell and nickel plated neodymium magnets placed safely inside. The separators fit standard test tubes and are available in sizes from 15 ml to 500 ml.
The combination of LOABeads magnetic particles and LOABeads MagSep is a simple biomagnetic separation platform that requires no special training to use. The separators require very little maintenance and several batches can be processed in parallel using the same unit, making the running costs very low.
The handling of LOABeads in the LOABeads MagSep magnetic separators follow the same simple procedure regardless of the size.
