Magnetic beads (or superparamagnetic particles) are versatile little tools for easy and effective isolation of biomolecules. Use this guide to compare the different surface chemistries and find the type for your application.
The lyophilization low-temperature dehydration process maximizes product or sample stability and shelf life, maintains chemical or biological function, and enables easier transportation and storage compared to a cold chain.
This guide discusses the key considerations when using magnetic beads to ensure you achieve accurate, reproducible results.
The success of PCR depends on making suitable choices for the approaches, design, reagents and instruments you use. Here we provide a quick guide to reagent options, and the challenges they address.
