ALPAQUA 96S Super Magnet

Product Code: A001322

This is the original “SPRIPlate” designed for use with the Beckman/Agencourt SPRI® magnetic bead chemistry. A reliable workhorse, it is used in a wide variety of magnetic bead protocols and found in top genome centers and laboratories all over the world.

Ring-shaped magnets pull magnetic beads to the well perimeter which allows for maximum aspiration of supernatants, wash solutions, and eluates.

Ring Magnet Benefits:

  • Minimizes edge effect because each well has a dedicated magnet
  • Faster separations because there is more magnetic material per well
  • Expansive 96 well microplate compatibility in comparison to post magnets, including with PCR plates

SBS footprint for broad compatibility, gripper grooves for easy robot access, and integrated Spring Cushion Technology


Why do I need Spring Cushion Technology?

Alpaqua magnet plates with integrated Spring Cushion Technology give way when tips come in contact with a well bottom. This compensates for physical tolerances between labware and pipettors that can compromise precision aspiration and ultimately improve pipetting.

  • Minimizes tip vacuum & possible pipette head contamination
  • Improves pipetting consistency and enables maximum aspiration of samples and reagents
  • Maximizes usage of reagents & samples
  • Protects instruments & consumables
  • Accelerates automated method development
