You will need a magnet for handling the magnetic beads (Invitrogen DynaMag 96 side magnetic rack, #12331D or Magnetic stand-96 #AM10027). Please note that we strongly recommend the Invitrogen DynaMag 96 magnet. We’ve found that users have had the most success with this type of magnet. The Magnetic stand-96 (Thermo Fisher #AM10027) is the only other approved magnet. Plate magnets that have a ‘well’ type magnet rather than a ‘bar’ or ‘post’ will result in low DNA yield. Other required items common to most labs and are listed in the Technical Manual.
