12-Tube Magnet

Cat. No. / ID: 36912

Magnet for separating magnetic beads in 12 x 1.5 ml or 2 ml tubes

Product Details

QIAGEN tube magnets are convenient separation devices for use in cell separation, magnetocapture, immunoassays and purification of 6xHis-tagged proteins. Magnetic separation can be carried out in a variety of tube sizes and volumes. The beads are pulled to the side of the tube by the magnetic field, which has a strength of greater than 20 megaoersted, and are held in place while solutions are exchanged or removed. Removal of the magnetic field allows easy resuspension of the magnetic particles.

Principle

The Single-Tube Magnet enables separation of magnetic particles in a 1.5 ml or 2 ml tube. The magnet can separate volumes between 40 µl and 1 ml that contain <5 mg BioMag particles.


The 12-Tube Magnet consists of a series of 12 powerful NdFeB (neodymium-iron-boron) magnetic disks. Each magnetic disk attracts the beads in a 1.5 ml or 2 ml tube fitted in an adjacent hole. After capture of 6xHis-tagged proteins, the magnetic beads are pulled to the side of the tubes and kept in place while buffers are exchanged. A second series of holes allows resuspension of the magnetic beads away from the magnetic field to enable thorough washing.


The 15 ml/50 ml Tube Magnet enables separation of BioMag magnetic particles in 15 ml or 50 ml tubes. Volumes between 7 ml and 12 ml in 15 ml tubes and between 25 ml and 40 ml in 50 ml tubes can be effectively separated.

FAQ ID - 3428
What type of magnet do you recommend for handling the magnetic beads in the Qproteome Plasma Membrane Protein protocol?

Since the Qproteome Plasma Membrane Protein procedure requires 1.5 ml/2.0 ml reaction tubes, we recommend using the follwing magnets for handling the magnetic beads:

Alternatively, comparable tube magnets or a standard clip-board magnet should also work.

FAQ ID -1193
Why have the hazard symbols accompanying products changed?
The Globally Harmonized System (GHS) is an initiative by the United Nations aiming to harmonize chemical hazard communication worldwide. Hazards symbols accompanying products are changing to those of the GHS. Information on the adoption of this new system is available on our GHS Hazard Labeling pages.
