Magnetic beads (or superparamagnetic particles) are one of the most versatile tools in molecular biology for easy and effective isolation of biomolecules. They incorporate tiny (20 to 30 nm) particles of iron oxides, such as magnetite (Fe3O4), which give them superparamagnetic properties. Whether you are purifying antibodies from a crude extract, coating beads with specific antibodies, or binding targets to the beads, it is important to choose a bead that suits your application. Sometimes, the required chemistry is not readily available or does not perform as intended and it is necessary to modify the magnetic properties, coatings or functional groups through customization or conjugation.
Join our webinar hosted by Tom Lyons (MChem) to discuss the technology behind magnetic bead chemistry and the advantages of conjugation and customization to optimize results. From protein and nucleic acid sample preparation to labeling and detection products, hear how these modifications can streamline your genomics workflow and expand your molecular diagnostic applications.
