Benefit from the gold standard in cell separation

Isolating cells using MACS® Technology is quick, simple, and straightforward.

MACS Technology is based on three components:

  • MACS MicroBeads – superparamagnetic particles conjugated to a highly specific, monoclonal antibody against a cell surface antigen.
  • MACS Columns – contain a matrix composed of ferromagnetic spheres covered with a cell-friendly coating
  • MACS 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

Once you have a single-cell suspension of cells, simply incubate them with our MicroBeads, pass them over a MACS Column in the magnetic field of a MACS Separator, and elute the cell populations of interest. It couldn’t be easier.

Over 16,000 publications have already relied on MACS Technology to deliver reproducible and outstanding results across many different research fields.

Discover more about MACS Technology or watch a 2-minute movie about its principles.
You can rely on the autoMACS® Pro Separator or MultiMACSTM Cell Separator for automated cell separation.
