The autoMACS™ Separator is a benchtop instrument for high-speed automated cell sorting. Employing the MACS® Technology, the autoMACS Separator is designed for positive selection as well as depletion of magnetically labeled cells. The autoMACS Separator is operated with pre-set separation programs, thus, allowing optimization of cell sorting approaches according to cell abundance and the intensity of marker expression. The separated cells are immediately ready for experiments, cell analysis, or further subset sorting.

Technical Specifications

Fast—up to 4×109 magnetically labeled cells are sorted automatically within a few minutes. • Efficient—rare cells can be enriched up to 10,000-fold or unwanted cells may be depleted up to 99%. • Reliable—proven automated cell separation technology since 1999.
