Transportation of magnetic beads between different reagents plays a crucial role in many biological assays e.g. for purification of biomolecules or cells where the beads act as a mobile solid support. Therefore, usually a complex set-up either for fluidic processing or for manipulation of magnetic beads is required. To circumvent these drawbacks, we present(More)
We present a novel method for integrated magnetic bead based DNA purification on a centrifugal microfluidic platform (“disk”). The system is characterized by purifying DNA from lysed E. coli cultures. Advantages over existing solutions [1-4] include operation at low centrifugal frequencies ( 8 Hz), modular design using one repeating unit operation, short(More)
