Streptavidin Nanobeads can be used for positive or negative selection of targeted cells with biotin-conjugated antibodies. For positive selection, the magnetically labeled fraction is retained by the use of a magnetic separator. For negative selection, the untouched cells are collected by decanting the liquid in a clean tube. Either positive or negative selection cells can be used for downstream applications such as functional assays, gene expression, phenotypic characterization, etc.

MojoSort™ reagents are also compatible with column-based cell separation systems available from other vendors. Optimized protocols for cell separation using columns from in-house testing are provided for each kit under the “Related Protocols” section, as well as representative data on the product webpage (where available). Data generated using column separators are indicated on the figure legend.

Due to the property of the beads, MojoSort™ reagents typically require dilution for optimal use on column separators. Where available, recommended dilution factors for each kit component based on in-house testing are provided under the “Application Notes” section of the webpage.

Related FAQs

Is there a way to detach your magnetic particles from the cell surface?

MojoSort™ Nanobeads: These magnetic particles cannot be removed from cells. This includes standalone Nanobeads and MojoSort kits using Nanobeads. We have found that cells are functional without the need to detach the magnetic Nanobeads.


MojoSort Microbeads: These magnetic particles may be released following the detailed product-specific protocol.

What is the size of your magnetic particles?

MojoSort Nanobeads: the average diameter is approximately 130 nm.


MojoSort Microbeads: the average diameter is approximately 1 μm.

Are MojoSort™ Nanobeads compatible with other commercially available magnetic separation systems?

MojoSort™ magnetic particles can be used with other commercially available magnetic separators, both free standing magnets and column-based systems. Because MojoSort™ protocols are optimized for the MojoSort™ separator, the protocols may need to be adjusted for other systems.  Please contact BioLegend Technical Service for more product-specific information and guidance. We do not recommend using MojoSort™ particles for BD’s IMag™ or Life Technologies’ DynaMag™.
