MC1000 - Carboxyl Mag Beads - Functionalized Magnetic Beads - Magnetic Beads (50nm-4.5μm) - By Products Type
Contact: 858-689-8808



These are hydrophilic Mono Mag (1 µm) with carboxylic acid groups. These surface groups allow covalent amide bond formation to proteins/peptides via primary amine (NH2) groups.
The beads exhibit rapid binding chemistry and low non-specific binding of nucleic acids. Amine modified oligonucleotides, antibodies or other ligands can easily be coupled to the beads. Activation through carbodimide is required. The 1 µm Mono Mag Carboxylic Acid Beads have a large surface area, high capacity, efficient magnetic pull and a slow sedimentation rate during incubation. Their compact structure ensures their fast magnetic separation than Hi-Sur Mag Beads (1 µm).


  • Immediate and gentle coupling at low temperature and neutral to low pH
  • Narrow size distribution, CV≤5%
  • Significant low non-specific binding to proteins and nucleic acid
  • Better or comparable performance with Dynabeads Myone Carboxylic Acid, ProMag Carboxylic Acid, and BioMag Carboxylic Acid.

1. Can the magnetic beads be sterilized?
Yes, carboxylic acid or amine functionalized and silica coated magnetic beads can be sterilized by washing with 70% ethanol. Protein conjugated beads cannot be sterilized.

2. Can the magnetic beads be sonicated?
Yes, short time sonication (couple seconds up to 5 minutes) is a good way to reduce aggregation of the beads and create homogenous conditions for coating or coupling. However, we don’t recommend to sonicate our magnetic beads over 10 min especially for protein conjugated beads. 

3. Are magnetic beads compatible with organic solvent?
Our magnetic beads are compatible for most polar solvent such as ethanol, methanol, acetone, isopropanol, dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), dimethylformamide (DMF), and acetonitrile.

4. Are magnetic beads compatible with urea?
Yes, they are compatible with 6–8 M urea.

5. Are magnetic beads compatible with EDTA?
Yes, our magnetic beads are compatible with EDTA.
