Speed your research and optimize your diagnostics with VYVID™ Superparamagnetic Silica Beads.

Delivering efficient separations, the new VYVID™ suite of superparamagnetic silica beads enhance in-vitro diagnostics offerings with high quality, fast and accurate separations.

VYVID™ represents a new class of magnetic particles suitable for applications involving high-throughput extraction and screening assays, manual small-scale isolation, or cell separation applications. Each VYVID™ product features our novel particle design that clads a superparamagnetic core with silica to eliminate the need for chromatography, centrifugation or vacuum filtration steps required in typical biomolecule purifications. The beads’ superb magnetic response enables speed and efficiency in separation. Plus, the beads lose all their magnetization (magnetic remanence) once the external magnetic field is removed, so they can be resuspended immediately, dispersing easily with no residual bead-to-bead magnetic attraction.
