Mouse P2RY12+ cells are either selected or depleted by incubating the sample with the biotin conjugated anti-mouse P2RY12 antibody, followed by Streptavidin Nanobeads. The magnetically labeled fraction is retained by the use of a magnetic separator. Cells collected after magnetic separation can be used for various downstream applications, including functional assays, gene expression analyses, and other phenotypic characterizations.Product Details

- 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 information and guidance. We do not recommend using MojoSort™ particles for BD’s IMag™ or Life Technologies’ DynaMag™.
- Can your magnetic particles be sterile filtered?
Yes, they can be sterile filtered as the particles are smaller than 0.22 µm.
- Is there a way to detach your magnetic particles from the cell surface?
No, not currently. We have found that cells are functional without the need to detach the magnetic Nanobeads.
- What is the size of your magnetic particles?
The average diameter is approximately 130 nm.
