Title: CONTACTLESS CONCENTRATION AND MIXING OF MAGNETIC MATERIAL IN LIQUID
Abstract:
Methods are provided for concentrating magnetic material, such as magnetic affinity beads, in liquid samples in sample containers such as wells of multiwell sample processing plates or sample tubes. Methods are also provided for dispersing magnetic material in liquid samples to effect mixing of the liquid. The disclosed methods include movement of magnets, such as magnetic rods or pins, to concentrate or disperse magnetic material, such as movement of magnets in interwell spaces of a multiwell plates or in spaces between sample tubes in a tube rack.
