MACS® Columns for magnetic cell isolation

MACS® Column-based cell separations are fast and gentle to any cell type flowing through. When using our MACS® MicroBeads along with MACS® Columns, you can rely on excellent yields and purity of cells with minimal labeling. Cell functionality is preserved following separation and isolated cells can be immediately used in the next step of your experimental workflow.

Take a look at the columns comparison below. We have the column you need for your cell separation procedures.
