Magnetic Aldehyde Activated Resin is a magnetic resin for the preparation of custom magnetic affinity chromatography media. The magnetic particles can be readily controlled and isolated in biological feedstock with the aid of a magnet. Coupling biospecific ligands to aldehyde-activated agarose is a successful and well-documented technique.
Magnetic Aldehyde Activated Resin forms chemically stable secondary amine linkages with ligands containing primary amine groups through reductive amination reactions. This pre-activated agarose base matrix can be readily employed to make various magnetic affinity chromatography adsorbents for both small scale and large scale purification applications.
