Resyn Bio selects Sepmag as preferred partner for Magnetic Bead Separation equipment

Traditional magnetic beads are comprised of solid microspheres.  Unfortunately, binding capacity is limited by the amount of area on the surface of these magnetic beads.

resyn bioResyn Biosciences (www.resynbio.com), based in South Africa, has developed a novel, patented [1] microsphere technology platform comprising of a loosely linked polyethileneimine matrix that allows penetration of biological and synthetic molecules throughout the internal and external volume of their microspheres. The result is a significant increase in surface area for binding of molecules, having functional group density of 3500 micromoles/g (vs 300-600 micromoles/g of standard magnetic beads)

To unleash the full potential of these high binding capacity microspheres (see figure), it is necessary to utilize a Magnetic Bead Separation system that guarantees the complete recovery of the magnetic beads.

Sepmaghomogenous Magnetic Bead Separation systems have shown superior recovery when compared to standard magnets [2], shorter separation times and easy scale-up of the process (from millilitres to tens of litres using the same technology).

Because of Sepmag’s unique and efficient magnetic separation technology, Resyn Biosciences has partnered withSepmagto provide precision magnetophoresis systems for homogenous magnetic microsphere separation.
