Product Watch: Alpaqua Magnet Plate for Bead-based Nucleic Acid Isolation


Alpaqua Engineering this week launched the Magnum FLX Enhanced Universal Magnet Plate for magnetic bead-based nucleic acid isolation applications including next-generation sequencing, DNA and RNA extraction, sequencing and PCR cleanup, and exome capture.

The new plate contains proprietary solid-core ring magnets, the unique geometry of which facilitates rapid separation of all sample volumes and low-volume nucleic acid elution, Alpaqua said. These capabilities are complemented by universal compatibility with all commonly used 96-well microplates and robotic platforms, the company added. Like all Alpaqua magnet plates, the Magnum FLX contains integrated spring cushion technology for improved automated pipetting consistency and sample recovery.
