Beadblaster 24 microtube homogenizer
Fast and efficient homogenization in about 35 seconds
For all types of samples, from soft tissue to bone
Mix up to 24 tubes simultaneously
2.0ml sealed tubes - eliminates cross contamination
Complete line of beads in pre-filled and bulk tubes available
BeadBlaster ™ 24 completely lyses, grinds and homogenizes
a wide variety of biological samples. Even the samples the most difficult and the most resistant are fully homogenized, often within 35 seconds or less.
The stainless steel tube holder subjects up to 24 samples to
High-speed optimized 3D movement, producing high-energy impacts
between samples and microbeads to release cell content.
After homogenization, the samples can be centrifuged and the
supernatant collected for further processing.
BeadBlaster 24 operating parameters are set and displayed
numerically. To protect fragile and heat sensitive samples, the unit can be programmed to operate in shortened consecutive cycles with
period of rest between the two. Up to 50 of these programs can be stored in memory and recalled for future use. A transparent cover allows samples to be viewed and has a mechanical cover lock that prevents the cover from opening when the BeadBlaster is in use. A brushless motor reduces motor noise and enables maintenance-free operation.
Benchmark offers an assortment of prefilled tube kits for a variety
types of samples. Popular Triple-Pure ™ kits include
zirconium beads acid washed and heat treated. The beads are tested to be nuclease free, making them ideal for molecular biology applications.
A convenient starter kit (D1032-SK) is available to suit
a wide range of sample types and optimize applications.
