autoMACS® Neo Automated Cell Separator

Automated cell isolation with the autoMACS® Neo Separator provides fast and gentle isolation of any cell type. Cells can be automatically isolated from PBMCs, dissociated tissues or directly from whole blood or bone marrow, which makes it ideal for diverse downstream applications, such as flow cytometry, cell-culture assays, or molecular analyses. With true walk-away automated cell separation, reproducible and user-independent results are achievable and certain. Proven in thousands of peer-reviewed publications, the autoMACS Pro is the most trusted automated magnetic cell separation instrument available.


Any positive and untouched isolation can be performed to separate target cells from PBMCs, cultured cells, and dissociated tissue. In addition, cells can be directly isolated from whole blood or bone marrow using StraightFrom® Whole Blood MicroBeads. Overall more than 400 different MicroBeads and Isolation Kits are available and we are steadily expanding our portfolio. Upon automated separation, labeled cells as well as non-labeled cells are obtained and can be used for a variety of downstream applications such as functional and molecular assays, chimerism analysis, and flow cytometry. To ensure cell viability and integrity, cells are kept cooled in Chill Racks.


Pre-set programs for all MACS® MicroBeads and Isolation Kits ensure accurate sample handling. Sensors constantly monitor the status of the autoMACS® Pro, buffer levels, and column status. This ensures optimal instrument performance and safety of samples and operators.
