MagSi-Beads for microfluidics & Automation

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.


MagSi-DNA mf and MagSi-DNA mf COOH 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)
