Magnetic beads are nano-sized particles with magnetic properties. They are used in the fields of food, biotechnology research, and medicine. This magnetic force can be used to separate and purify various substances easily. In addition, because a magnetic bead is moved using magnets, they have the advantage that they do not require mechanical movement and are easy to clean.
Many companies are involved in the development of magnetic beads, which come in a variety of types. Uniform shape, strong magnetic force, dispersion and adsorption properties are required.
Magnetic beads are used in a variety of fields. One example is the medical field. Magnetic beads can be used to separate and purify cells, microscopic bacteria, proteins, and nucleic acids. A typical application is immunoprecipitation. Primary antibodies are placed in a solution containing antigens. Next, magnetic beads to which proteins or secondary antibodies are attached are added to the solution. Finally, by applying a magnet from the outside, only the magnetic beads can be adsorbed on the wall surface. This allows for efficient and rapid separation.
Magnetic beads are used in a variety of fields, taking advantage of their characteristics. Here, we will introduce their typical characteristics.
