Maelstrom 8-channel Handler, the world’s first portable magnetic beads handling device, is designed to enhance laboratory productivity. Equipped with specialized spin tips and 2500 gauss magnetic rods, M8-H can mix and collect magnetic beads efficiently. Intuitive user interface and simple operation can help you accomplish various applications of magnetic beads. Furthermore, combination with automated stand provides a walk-away solution for nucleic acid and protein purification.
The Maelstrom 8 uses the same specialized spin tips as the Maelstrom 4800 and 9600. Therefore upgrading the protocol to a medium or high throughput will not affect the chemistry or treatment. Upgrading your throughput has never been easier.
The Maelstrom 8 system contains all software to design or adapt your isolation protocol without leaving the lab. For more complicated protocols, the system connects to your pc via USB and new protocols can also be written in excel and uploaded directly.
When the auto-stage is enabled, the system connects to the auto-stage and automates all motions. The auto-stage moves the MH8 over the plate. Moving down can be done very slow or even in increments to assure a perfect migration from the magnetic bead particles towards the magnetized rods.
The Maelstrom 8 is the ideal system for any low throughput magnetic bead based isolation process.
