SuperMACS™ II Separator

SuperMACS™ II Separator

Developed for large-scale cell separations, the SuperMACS™ II Separator can be used in combination with any MACS
®
Column for manual cell separation.
The SuperMACS II Separator is provided with three column adapters to insert MACS Columns into the magnetic field.

Background information

The SuperMACS II Separators contains a powerful permanent magnet that induces a high-gradient magnetic field within MACS Columns – a field strong enough to retain cells labeled with even small amounts of MACS MicroBeads.

Applications

In addition to many applications using MACS MicroBeads, the VarioMACS Separator, and the SuperMACS™ II Separator in combination with LD Columns
1
have been used for the enrichment of
Plasmodium falciparum–
infected erythrocytes without magnetic labeling
2
. The malaria parasites digest red blood cell hemoglobin, resulting in the formation of hemozoin. The paramagnetic properties of hemozoin allow magnetic isolation of red blood cells without the need for further labeling.
