The MiniMACS™, OctoMACS™, MidiMACS™, QuadroMACS™, VarioMACS™ and SuperMACS™ II Separators are designed for fast and easy cell separation when used with MACS® Columns and MACS MicroBeads or Whole Blood MicroBeads. The separators contain powerful permanent magnets that induce a high-gradient magnetic field within MACS Columns – a field strong enough to retain cells labeled with even small amounts of MACS MicroBeads.
The MACSxpress® Separator enables untouched cell isolation from up to 30 mL of anticoagulated whole blood without density gradient centrifugation in a single step. The strong magnet of the MACSxpress Separator in combination with the MACSxpress Isolation Cocktail allows for efficient sedimentation of erythrocytes and depletion of unwanted cells. Target cells can be easily collected in the supernatant. The MACSxpress Separator can only be used in combination with MACSxpress Cell Isolation Kits.
The MACSiMAG™ Separator has been developed for the removal of MACSiBead™ Particles, which are employed for depletion as well as for cell activation and expansion experiments.
MACS® Separator Starting Kits include all the components necessary for an easy and successful start into the leading cell isolation technology.
