Magnetic Bead Separation for Every Microplate

Largest collection of magnetic separation blocks on the market!

V&P Scientific designs and makes the largest collection of Magnetic Bead Separation Blocks in the research market. There are Separation Blocks for a large variety of microplates on this page and a separate page of Magnetic Bead Separation racks for vials, tubes, bottles and larger containers.

V&P uses the strongest available Neodymium Iron Boron (NdFeB) magnets varying from 48 to 52 MGO for these Magnetic Bead Separation Systems. Careful attention has been paid to the design of the magnetic bead separation blocks resulting in a reduction in collection times and bead loss during washing. If we don't have a separation block to fit your plate we will custom build one for you.

One of our customers that provides magnetic beads purchased several of our Magnetic Bead Separation Blocks. Upon opening the box, the sales rep commented about our Blocks, “I just received the magnetic plates and they are awesome! The customer is going to love these things!”

Magnetic Bead Separation Block Systems - Modes of Use

Robotic Use

The photos below show V&P Magnetic Bead Separation Blocks being used on automated liquid handling workstations:

Agilent Bravo Apricto Designs TPS-384 Beckman Biomek FX Tecan Freedom EVO

Manual Use with V&P Aspirating and Dispensing Manifolds

Manual processing of microplates for magnetic bead assays using V&P's Magnetic Bead Separation Block along with Aspirating and Dispensing Manifolds is very easy. See the video below or click here for more information.


Manual Use with Pipetting

V&P Magnetic Bead Separation Blocks are designed so that the magnetic beads are collected in a location that is optimal for manually pipetting the liquid. The strong magnets in V&P Block hold the magnetic beads in place while pipetting.

For assistance with manual pipetting see Pipette Tip Guide VP 771Z-384 for more information.

Manual Use with Handheld Flick-n-Blot Magnetic Bead Separation Blocks

The VP 771HH series Handheld Magnetic Separation Block were designed so the liquid contents of the wells could be removed by simply decanting or “flicking” the contents into a waste container and blotting off the remainder on absorbant paper.

VP 771HH series Handheld Magnetic Separation Blocks consists of 3 parts:

Registration Bases for Magnetic Bead Separation Blocks

Alignment and Safety:

The V&P Magnetic Bead Separation Blocks are designed to work with a Registration Base so that:

Some V&P Magnetic Bead Separation Blocks can be used without a Registration Base when

Comparison of VP 771G-4R and VP 771G-4RM-1 (left and right in photos below)

VP 771G-4R is the low profile Registration Base while VP 771G-4RM-1 is higher profile but not as wide.

Both Registration Bases have an SBS dimensioned base (left photo) and plate guides that hold the Separation Block and microplate in alignment in an SBS dimensioned pocket on top (right photos).

The differences between the two Registration Bases are as follows:

  • Use with or without the Magnetic Bead Separation Block to fill microplate
  • Use Magnetic Bead Separation Block that comes with Registration Base VP 771G-4RM-1

VP 178D

When using Magnetic Bead Separation Block VP 771E-2, magnetic beads are pulled to the side of the wells permitting the aspiration of the supernatant from the center of the well or from a corner.

The “angled tube” Microplate Aspirating Manifold VP 178D along with its alignment jig system VP 381E is designed removing supernatants from magnetic beads separated by the VP 771E-2 Block

Microplate Adapter for Plate Washer

VP 771L-1

The VP 771L-1 is a PCR Microplate Adapter for use with the Tecan Hydroflex plate washer. The Tecan Hydroflex was designed for use with standard 96 well microplates but not 96 PCR microplates. The VP 771L-1 Microplate Adapter positions a PCR microplate securely over the magnets in the plate washer tray. The bottom of each well is directly on top and touching the magnet so that the beads are pulled to the bottom.


The photos below illustrate how the VP 771L-1 fits into a Tecan Hydroflex.

Pipette Tip Guide

VP 771Z-384

The VP 771Z-384 Pipette Tip Guide is designed for when a multi-channel pipette is used to process a magnetic bead assay in a 384 well plate. This adjustable Tip Guide allows the distance that the pipet tips go into the well to be raised or lowered. This controls the tip as it enters the well, so that the bead pellet is not disturbed.


The guide’s four “feet” rest on the MagSep Block’s registration base and the guide plate can be raised and lowered by adjusting the “leg” height.
