Using Magnetic Microparticles in Molecular and Cellular Isolations

Spherotech Inc.

In the past five decades, major advances have been achieved in molecular diagnostic testing for infectious diseases. Many of the significant advances are attributed to the use of magnetic microparticles in research laboratories as a solid phase support. Their ability to isolate or absorb various molecules in applications such as ribonucleic acid (RNA) purification, magnetic cell separation, magnetic particle enzyme immunoassay (EIA) and many other applications makes them beneficial to molecular and cellular isolations.
