BcMag™ C-8 (Reversed-Phase) magnetic Beads are ~ 1 um, uniform, silica-based, superpara-magnetic beads containing hydrophobic C8 alkyl groups on the surface. The beads are specifically designed for quickly purifying, desalting and concentrating femtomolar to picomolar scale of peptides or proteins, manually or automatically without the need for laborious repeat of pipetting and centrifuging. BcMag™ C-4 magnetic beads are most suitable for larger molecular weight proteins and peptides. BcMag™ C-18 Magnetic beads are recommended for purification, desalting and concentration of low molecular weight proteins or peptides, while BcMag™ C-8 magnetic beads are most suitable for low to intermediate molecular weight proteins. In many cases, however the three types of beads can be used interchangeably.
Features and Advantages:
Quick, Easy and one-step high-throughput procedure; eliminates columns or
filters, or laborious repeat of pipetting or centrifugation (Fig.1)
High binding capacity
Scalable - easily adjusts for sample size and automation
Low cost: only half the price of competitors’ magnetic beads
