Magnetic Bead Separation Technology: uses of super paramagnetic magnetic beads whose magnetic nucleus surface are surrounded by silica to achieve automated DNA/RNA extraction.
1) Magnetic beads are added to samples
2) DNA/RNA is bound to Magnetic beads (Beads are held in the well by the magnet while contaminants are washed away)
3) DNA/RNA is eluted and recovered from the beads, while beads are held in the well by the magnet.
4) Extracted DNA/RNA is ready-to-use in downstream applications.
