, and thermoMACS™ Separators
are designed for fast and easy biomolecule separation when used with MACS® Columns
and MACS® MicroBeads
. The separators contain powerful permanent magnets that induce a high-gradient magnetic field within the columns. The magnetic field enables the purification of mRNA, proteins, or viruses that are labeled with superparamagnetic MACS MicroBeads. Due to the gentle washing procedures even large molecule complexes can be gently isolated, enabling the study of protein-protein or protein-DNA interactions. The thermoMACS Separator
is capable of heating samples in the column to 37 °C or 42 °C allowing of carrying out in-column enzymatic reactions i.e. cDNA synthesis after mRNA isolation. As no tube-to-tube transfer is needed high recovery is ensured.
