Mag4C Capture and Concentration of Viruses


Mag4C Capture and Concentration of Viruses

The Mag4C kits are designed for magnetic virus concentration. These kits are specifically developed for capturing, concentrating and storing adenoviruses or lentiviruses and retroviruses. Each kit includes 3 reagents optimized for Magnetic Capture/Concentration, Elution or Conservation of viruses. Mag4C magnetic nanoparticles capture viruses by electrostatic and hydrophobic interactions in culture media with 80-99% efficiency. Once captured onto magnetic beads, viruses can be: 

  • Concentrated and stored with the Conservation Buffer
  • Concentrated and eluted from the magnetic beads with the Elution Buffer followed by storage with the Conservation Buffer, or used for other assays. 

The Mag4C kits must be used with a Magnetic Separation Rack, which can be purchased separately or in combination with the Mag4C kit.
