Applied Biosystems MagMAX Express-96 Deep Well Magnetic Particle Processor.  DNA/RNA Purification.Plastic top cover has a small crack. MagMAX Express Magnetic Particle Processors • Proven to work with the MagMAX Sample Preparation System • Superior nucleic acid recovery and cross contamination control • Two configurations for higher or lower throughput • Compatible with magnetic bead-based sample preparation kits • Easy-to-use with pre-loaded programs • Reliable service and support from Applied Biosystems The MagMAX Express magnetic particle processors are ideal for automated magnetic-bead-based extraction of nucleic acids using the MagMAX Sample Preparation System. Two configurations are available: the MagMAX Express for low throughput processing, and the MagMAX Express-96 for high throughput environments. Advanced Technology Most automated liquid handling systems move reagents into and out of a single well to perform the different steps of nucleic acid isolation. In contrast, the MagMAX Express utilizes permanent rods to collect magnetic beads from solution and releases the beads into the well containing reagents for the next step of isolation. The effectiveness of bead collection and transfer leads to superior washing, elution efficiency, and rapid processing. Independent Movement Control The MagMAX Express and MagMAX Express–96 magnetic particle processors utilize permanent magnetic rods and disposable tip combs with independent movement control. When the magnetic rod—sheathed inside the tip comb—is lowered into solution, magnetic beads collect at the bottom of the tip comb. The tip comb can then be positioned in a different well or plate and the beads can be released by moving the magnetic rods out of the tip comb. The tip comb also mixes the reagents and magnetic beads.
