Through high-affinity antibodies attached to the surface of magnetic Dynabeads® - known as immunomagnetic separation (IMS) technology - a valuable means to isolate specific biological entities from complex matrices is provided for your work!  Their use in sample preparation greatly improves the speed, sensitivity, and reproducibility of microbial analysis.  Dynabeads® IMS water products have been designed for both manual and automated separation of the specific target organism.

Invitrogen has entered into a strategic collaboration with IDEXX Laboratories, Inc. for the distribution and development of new products for the water testing industry.
