Keep Magnetic Bead and Biomolecule Losses near Zero during Production

When scaling up a process using a traditional magnetic separation rack, the percentage of bead and biomolecule losses significantly increases with an increase in volume. One way of dealing with this problem is by applying a higher force at longer distances. But for this to work, you must apply this greater force without increasing the forces in the retention area during the magnetic separation process, in order to avoid irreversible aggregation.

How to Guarantee Lot-to-Lot Consistency in Biomagnetic Separation

If one wants to scale up production from small lab lots to full-scale large lots, a non-homogenous magnetic separation process will result in lot-to-lot inconsistencies. Homogenous biomagnetic separation conditions, however, guarantee consistent results regardless of production scale.

Centrifugation and Filtering with Biomagnetic Separation

Biomagnetic separation techniques are faster, cheaper and easier to use than non-magnetic techniques. In addition, when a magnetic separation process is performed under homogenous conditions, these techniques are also scalable and easily validated.

Detect Resuspension Problems with Biomagnetic Separation Processes

Due to the inherent properties of classic non-homogenous biomagnetic separators, beads can aggregate during the magnetic separation process. When this happens, technicians try to resolve the magnetic beads separation problem by using special resuspension techniques like the sonication method. But problems with resuspension can ultimately lead to end-product variability, especially if aggregation is not detected early.

Settling on the Correct Biomagnetic Separation Conditions

When using biomagnetic separation, in order to ensure the consistency of the resulting product and the process itself, there must be some sort of validation procedure. Validation should be consistent within a given lot, from lot to lot and also when the process is scaled up. The validation procedure should optimally be related to the conditions of magnetic bead separation and not be dependent on any specific device that generates the magnetic field.

Monitoring Homogenous Biomagnetic Separation Processes

Biomagnetic separation used to take place in academic labs, but recently it has become a very industrial application. As processes are scaled up and volumes increase, the investment required for each batch is larger, but the expected economic return is also larger.

Accelerating the Movement of Magnetic Beads

Because biomagnetic separation techniques are relatively simple, life science laboratories and industries are quite enamored with them. Indeed, using only magnetic beads and magnetic fields, biomolecules can be captured and extracted from complex media in magnetic bead separation. However, if this application is to be considered practical, it should also be faster than other separation technologies such as chromatography, electrophoresis or centrifugation.

Fully Controlling Your Biomagnetic Separation Process

Because biomaterial is expensive, fragile, complex and sometimes rare, biotech companies spend a great deal of time and resources to develop and refine biomaterial production processes. Quality control and standard operating procedure demand that production managers make sure that all technicians and operators know and follow the exact procedures from batch to batch.

Biomagnetic Separation: Ensuring Complete Consistency From Lot to Lot

Consistent lot-to-lot results are achieved with biomagnetic technology only when magnetic bead separation is performed in defined and homogeneous conditions. When homogeneity is realized, separation is reproducible and scalable.
