MagSi-DNA beads can be used as a solid phase support phase in DNA extraction and purification protocols by using a simple bind/wash/elute principle. They are intended for own development of protocols and available with a range of physical properties and a silica or carboxyl modified surface.
MagSi-DNA kits are meant for the extraction of genomic DNA from whole blood, saliva or vegetal material.
Finally, we offer a range of PCR Clean-upDNA Size Selection and Dye-Terminator removal options.


MagSi-Beads for microfluidics

MagSi-DNA mf


Microfluidics deals with the precise control and manipulation of fluids that are geometrically constrained to a small, typically sub-millimeter, scale. In the field of molecular biology the whole DNA extraction, amplification and detection process can be integrated on a chip. This not only simplifies the process for end-users, but also implies a significant cost reduction per preparation. Miniaturized setups even allow for the development and implementation of multiplexed assays (e.g. qPCR). Faster protocols are possible due to the shorter reaction steps and/or quicker separation times. Eventually, portable devices can (and will) be developed with direct application for point-of-care diagnostics.


Disc of diagnostics

MagSi-DNA mf are special ferrimagnetic, silica beads, developed for use in microfluidic and chip-based genomic setups. They can be applied for the extraction of nucleic acids within the confined spaces and channels of DNA-chips. When desired, MagSi-DNA mf beads can also serve as a platform for various surface modifications, like activation (COOH, NH2 etc.), or by coupling (proteins, antibodies etc.).




•Ferrimagnetic core with silica shell

    • •Small bead diameter, providing a large active silica surface
    • •High yields and good nucleic acids quality
    • •Instant collection of ferrimagnetic beads even in a weak magnetic field
    • •Low magnetic remanance allowing easy resuspension
    • •Very well suited for typical applications such as multiplex qPCR, LAMP etc.
    • •Compatible with drying/reconstitution cycles for stable storage
    • •Easy to automate on liquid handling workstations (e.g. Hamilton STARline, Tecan EVO, KingFisher)
