Magnetic beads (or superparamagnetic particles) are a versatile tool in molecular biology for easy and effective isolation of biomolecules. Whether you are purifying antibodies from a crude extract, coating beads with specific antibodies, or binding targets to the beads, it is important to select a bead that suits your application. Sometimes, the required chemistry is not readily available or does not perform as intended, and it is necessary to modify the magnetic properties, coatings, or functional groups through customization or conjugation.
