Invitrogen MAGic Sample Processor

Client: Life Technologies

Life Technologies recognized the challenge faced by researchers in getting immunoprecipitation samples in a lab setting- multiple machines were required and transferring samples across the room was common. They challenged PDT to transform a previously complex process contained within a friendly, approachable device. PDT’s team gained a clear understanding of the challenges posed by the setting, ergonomic considerations and thermal dynamic issues. The result is the industry’s first benchtop sample preparation system designed to increase productivity while eliminating manual and contamination-related challenges traditionally associated with protein and epigenetic protocols. The MAGic Sample Processor houses innovative microfluidics, thermal controls and integrated magnetic separation technology, which allows researchers to easily automate their protein purification and epigenetics methods without relying on centralized facilities. MAGic enables researchers to cut protocol time in half, dramatically reduce experimental errors, and perform technically challenging experiments in protein purification and epigenetics.
