MagRetriever® is a new concept in immunomagnetic separation (IMS) that quickly retrieves immunomagnetic beads (IMBs) from up to 250 mL of suspension. Pour IMB suspension into a Retrieval Vessel, place it in the MagRetriever® and in just minutes your IMBs will be concentrated in the Vessel's central Well, for easy transfer by Pasteur pipet or PickPen® to the next stage of your detection procedure. MagRetriever® is then immediately ready for the next suspension (it can run throughout the day without need for cleanup). Analytical targets could be bacteria, viruses, allergens, etc. MagRetriever® was developed to just retrieve IMBs, not to trap target analyte at the same time - this means you can vary your trapping protocols as much as you wish.
MagRetriever® handles a variety of commercially available IMBs and you can key in or make up programs optimized for particular IMBs if you wish.
These photos show the proprietary Retrieval Vessel, and a suspension of MagaBeads® concentrated down into its central well in just two minutes.
