Technical Data
Magnetic Beads, Streptavidin 600nm, MagDetect™
Molecular Biology Storage: 4°CShipping: Blue Ice
MagDetect™ Streptavidin beads are useful for many applications, including purification of proteins and peptides or nucleic acids, immunoprecipitation, immunoassays, protein interaction studies, phage display, and cell isolation. MagSi-STA beads are coated with streptavidin, which efficiently binds to biotinylated molecules, e.g. peptides, proteins, antibodies, sugars, lectins. The magnetic properties enable easy and quick washing steps. Because beads are in suspension, incubation times can be shortened compared to alternative techniques. Columns or centrifugation steps are not necessary when working with magnetic beads. This feature enables easy implementation into automated processes.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4°C. For long-term storage, store at 4°C. Do not freeze! Store beads in well closed vial and in upright position to prevent drying of the beads since this makes them more difficult to resuspend and may decrease their activity. Vortex bead suspension well before use. Beads are stable for at least 6 months.

Use of MagDetect™ Magnetic Separators:
Magnetic separators are required to work with magnetic beads. MagDetect™ Separators work with all MagDetect™ products as well as all competitive magnetic beads on the market.

M2106-80, Magnetic Bead Separator 12+12 for MagDetect™ beads in 12x1.5ml and 12x 2ml tubes.
M2106-81, Magnetic Bead Separator 96 well for MagDetect™ beads in microplate format.
M2106-82, Magnetic Bead Separator, PCR Strip Adapter, MagDetect™ (use with M2106-81). PCR strip Adapter is placed on the 96 well Separator and is suitable for users with smaller sample throughput, preferring use of PCR tube strips over PCR plates.
