Newswise — WARMINSTER, Pa. — Abraxis, Inc., which develops, manufactures, and markets rapid environmental and food test systems in plate, strip test, and magnetic bead formats, announces two new additions to its AbraMag® Magnetic Beads line:

  • DNA Fragment Size Selection
  • PCR Clean-Up

AbraMag Magnetic Beads are ready-to-use for molecular biology, biochemistry, and sample prep applications. They are used to capture/purify targets such as DNA/RNA, antibodies, proteins, antigens, and E. coli. There are very few original manufacturers of magnetic beads, and AbraMag beads match or beat the leading competitors in yield, purity, and quality, all at a better value.

Magnetic bead capture offers numerous advantages over conventional methods (which use columns or centrifugation) for purifying proteins, antibodies or nucleic acids:

  • Faster and simpler.
  • Less expensive.
  • Greater yield and purity.
  • More consistent results.
  • Gentler: no shear forces, no centrifugation.
  • No columns or expensive equipment needed.
  • Works for very small or very large sample volumes.
  • Easily adapted to different sample types.
  • Ideal for automation.
