TWC BioSearch, in co-operation with CORTEX BIOCHEM, offers the most comprehensive line of magnetizable particles in the Asian Market. The MagaPhase technology utilizes a unique encapsulation process, whereby ultra-pure iron oxide (Fe3O4) is suspended and uniformly entrapped in a variety of polymer supports such as polysaccharides, acrylic polymers, and co-polymers. This method produces a reliable, consistent, and low-cost magnetizable support which has been used in a variety of successful commercial manual and automated assays. MagaPhase particles are "paramagnetic"; once the magnetic field has been removed, MagaPhase particles retain no residual magnetism. Magnetizable particles have been found useful in many applications including Immunoseparation, Cell Separation, and DNA/RNA Separation. In large-scale purification procedures MagaPhase products can replace non-magnetizable supports. This simplifies processing and increases purified product recovery to its maximum potential by reducing cumbersome manipulation steps.
MagaPhase particles coupled to a variety of reagents are also available. These include secondary antibodies, enzymes, and bioactive compounds for affinity purification.
On an OEM basis, MagaPhase particles can be manufactured to meet your custom specifications.
CORTEX BIOCHEM offers a full line of MagaPhase products for affinity purification. These include Streptavidin, Protein A, Protein G, and affinity purified species-specific secondary antibodies coupled to MagaCell or MagaBeads.
MagaCell-X is a product line of magnetizable cellulose ion-exchangers:
" MagaCell-Diethylaminoethyl (DEAE)
" MagaCell-Carboxymethyl (CM)
" MagaCell-Polyethyleneimine (PEI)
" MagaCell-Quaternary Ammonium Cellulose (Q)
These products are designed for fast, easy, and efficient separation of proteins, enzymes, and nucleic acid fragments. MagaCell-X may be used in magnetizable batch separation techniques, offering significant advantages over conventional ion-exchange methods. For example, samples are not required to be free of cellular debris or other insoluble material, since no columns are required. Washing and elution steps are simply and rapidly achieved by using a standard magnet.
MagaBeads are uniform spherical magnetizable particles, prepared using a unique surface modification chemistry that allows virtually any length structure to be attached to the magnetizable particles' surface. MagaBeads can be used in bioseparation technologies without harming enzymes, microbes, or cells. CORTEX BIOCHEM's MagaBeads product line is designed to provide a cost-effective way to scale up your laboratory separation process.
MagaBeads are best recommended for the following applications:
" Protein and DNA Separation
" Cell Isolation
" Enzyme Immobilization
" Bacterial Capture
