Magnetic Bead Resuspension

VP 771-PR Pellet Resuspender

     
 


The VP 771-PR was designed to re-suspend magnetic bead pellets in microplates after they had been pulled to the sides or the bottom of the wells using our magnetic separation blocks.  Being able to re-suspend the beads in the wells aids in the washing process.  The VP 771-PR is constructed to the same dimensions as a standard microplate (127.76 mm long and 85.48 mm wide) and has 2 very strong NdFeB (50 MGO) bars (3 mm x 12 mm x 75mm) at each end.  When a robot plate handler picks up the VP 771-PR and moves it over the microplate,  the beads are re-suspended in the liquid with only 2 passes of the VP 771-PR. This resuspension process is fast and easy and does not require liding or de-liding of the plate.  The
VP 771-PR can also be used manually.

 
 
 


The photo to the right show the bottom of the VP 771-PR.  The VP 771-PR body is made from polypropylene with a polycarbonate lid holding the magnetic bars in place.  The photo on the right also shows how close the cavity that holds the bars is to the surface of the VP 771-PR.

VP 771-PD

     
 


The VP 771-PD was designed to disrupt magnetic bead pellets in microplates after they had been pulled to the sides or the bottom of the wells using our magnetic separation blocks.  Being able to break up the pelleted  beads in the wells aids in the washing process.  The VP 771-PD is constructed with polypropylene and single very strong NdFeB (50 MGO) bar (3 mm x 12 mm x 75mm). The design is such that we can change the height of the magnet above the deck.   When a robot plate handler picks up a microplate and moves it over the VP 771-PD the bead pellets are disrupted with only 2 passes over the VP 771-PD. This pellet disruption process is fast and easy and does not require liding or de-liding of the plate.
