M-PVA Magnetic Beads

Magnetic Beads Based on Polyvinyl Alcohol

Ready to use functionalized Magnetic Beads for specific and fast binding of biomolecules

For more than 25 years chemagen develops, functionalizes, and produces magnetic particles based on polyvinyl alcohol, referred to as M-PVA Magnetic Beads. These M-PVA Magnetic Beads are the backbone for our functionalized M-PVA Magnetic Beads, which can be used for highly specific isolation of target molecules.

Outstanding properties

  • Superparamagnetic, exhibit magnetic behavior only in the presence of an external magnetic field
  • High magnetite content for fast magnetic separation, even from large sample volumes
  • Polydisperse particles for a uniform magnetic separation
  • Micrometer (µm) sized beads present a high active surface per volume and allow efficient adaptation to specific applications, available in two different size ranges (0.6-1.25 µm and 0.8-3 µm)
  • Mechanical robustness allows different kinds of processing and facilitates automated use
  • Chemical functionalization of the matrix with different modifications for high and specific binding capacity
  • Hydrophilicity of the PVA surface, leading to low non-specific protein binding
  • High thermal stability enabling easy sterilization by autoclaving*
