MagReSyn SAX (2 ml)
MagReSyn® SAX (strong anion exchange) is a magnetic polymeric microparticle support designed for capture, purification and recovery of biomolecules such as proteins/peptides, enzymes, antibodies by exploiting differences in net charge to reversibly adsorb oppositely-charged molecules. MagReSyn® SAX is ideal for fractionation of complex biological mixtures (e.g. serum, plasma, urine, CSF, cell lysates, culture supernatants etc.) prior to analytical methods such as 2-dimensional electrophoresis, HPLC or Mass Spectrometry. The microparticles have an exceptional capacity allowing for experimental miniaturization and elution in minimal volume.
New miniaturized, high throughput technologies for bioseparation, diagnostics, DNA sequencing, flow cytometry, drug discovery, proteomics and genomics are in many instances reliant on attachment of functional biological molecules to a microsphere support. The vast array of life sciences applications include: capture reagents for immunoassay (fluorescence, enzyme linked etc); surfaces for immunoprecipitation; diagnostic assays; fluorescence microscopy; flow/imaging cytometry; magnetic cell separation; molecular diagnostics; agglutination tests; nucleic acid separation and protein separation among others.
Conventional microparticle technologies use solid or porous/cracked microparticles with binding of biological molecules limited to the surface, a key factor constraining performance and the development of new applications for microparticle technologies and products. We have developed a novel (patented) microparticle technology platform, comprising a hyper-porous polymer matrix that allows penetration of biological and synthetic molecules throughout the volume of the microparticles. This offers exceptionally high surface area for binding of molecules and allows performance that is orders of magnitude greater than alternate technologies. The binding capacity serves as a major performance contributor to the number of applications and versatility for end-user applications by and further enables miniaturization, increased sensitivity and reducing the cost of R&D.
