Barcoded Magnetic Beads*

Achieve 4,096-plex in 1 microwell

Digitally barcoded magnetic beads are highly stable and demonstrate low, non-specific binding characteristics in biological assays. Applied BioCode® currently offers four different functionalized Barcoded Magnetic Beads:

• Carboxyl beads – enables covalent attachment of nucleic acids, and other ligands on the bead surface. Carboxyl beads permit probes and specific primers to bind to the bead surface via amino-modified 5' termini.
• P-Carboxyl beads – enables covalent attachment of proteins, peptides, and other ligands. P-Carboxyl beads enable proteins to bind to the bead surface covalently via amino groups.
• Amino beads – enables covalent attachment of proteins, peptides, and other ligands with the characteristics of high stability and low non-specific binding. Amino beads enable proteins to bind to the bead surface covalently via carboxyl groups.
• Streptavidin beads – designed for high affinity binding to biotinylated molecules. This simple and flexible immobilization chemistry enables rapid assay development for a variety of applications.

Barcoded Magnetic Beads are formed by doping biocompatible polymer with paramagnetic material. Biocompatible polymer enables highly stable surface chemistry; paramagnetic material exhibits magnetic properties when an external magnetic field is applied, allowing for easy washing and separation. Each 70 x 25 x 6 µm bead contains one of 4,096 possible digital barcodes that can be readily identified through bright field imaging.

 

Conventional vs. Multiplex Methods

 

A diverse range of bioassay applications can be explored using BMB with the BioCode 2500 Analyzer. In microplate assays, each microwell is capable of holding hundreds of BMBs. Numerous beads with different barcodes may be placed in each well for multiplex testing. BMB are standard packaged in 1.5 mL tubes that each contains a unique bead code. Custom package sizes are available upon request.
