Because TurboBeads are metallic, they have largely increased magnetic properties. They can be separated from micro-liter to multi-liter volumes using standard off-the-shelf magnets within seconds to minutes. When using TurboBeads there is no need for specialized magnets or high-magnetic-gradient-separators (HGMS). Our products are supplied with a suitable gold-plated magnet.
The saturation magnetization of TurboBeads is far superior to classical oxide based materials and reflects the metallic nature of the nanobeadís core.
