OVERVIEW

Developed for large-scale cell separations, the SuperMACS™ II Separator can be used in combination with any MACS® Column for manual cell separation.
The SuperMACS II Separator is provided with three column adapters to insert MACS Columns into the magnetic field

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

The SuperMACS II Separators contains a powerful permanent magnet that induces a high-gradient magnetic field within MACS Columns – a field strong enough to retain cells labeled with even small amounts of MACS MicroBeads

APPLICATIONS

In addition to many applications using MACS® MicroBeads, the VarioMACS Separator in combination with LD or CS Columns1 has been used for the enrichment of Plasmodium falciparum-infected erythrocytes without magnetic labeling2. The malaria parasites digest red blood cell hemoglobin, resulting in the formation of hemozoin. The paramagnetic properties of hemozoin allow magnetic isolation of red blood cells without the need for further labeling.
