Lab Homogenizers

In need of a homogenizer? We have the handheld or benchtop homogenizers you’re looking for.

 

With a wide selection of products to choose from, our product line is sure to meet your needs.

 

If you’re looking for a convenient, but quite powerful, handheld lab homogenizer then the PRO250 is ideal for you while the D1000 handheld homogenizer is perfect for use with microtubes.

 

When you need to agitate numerous samples at a time, then it may be best to consider the Mini-Beadbeater-16, which can handle four to sixteen samples all at once.

 

If you have tissue that’s been hard-frozen in liquid nitrogen, and need to reduce it to a fine powder, then consider the numerous Bio-Pulverizers in our product line. 

 

Most importantly, we carry Bullet Blenders! Among a ton of other benefits, these homogenizers avoid cross-contamination between samples and sample loss.

Uses 1.5 mL screw-cap RINO® tubes or 1.5 mL snap-cap Eppendorf® Safe-lock™ tubes. 

CE certified with upgraded electronics. 


Includes Basic Starter Kit:

  • Bead Sample Pack contains samples of eight different bead types.
  • Spoon for dispensing beads
  • Sample pack of Eppendorf® Safe-lock™ tubes
  • Sample pack of RINO® screw-cap tubes

Benchmark BeadBug™ 6

The BeadBug™ is a high energy benchtop homogenizer that sets the performance standard for personal sized cell disruption and lysis instruments.

Simultaneous homogenization of up to 6 samples takes place (often within 45 seconds) inside the disposable 2 mL screw cap microtubes. The
optimized mixing motion causes rapid cell disruption through constant high velocity impact from the hardened micro-beads chosen specifically
for your sample type.

Developed for samples too tough to be homogenized in a common lab vortexer, the BeadBug provides a convenient and economical alternative
to the traditional, over-priced homogenizers on the market today. With up to six tube capacity and a foot print of just 9 x 14 in., the BeadBug is
the ideal homogenizing instrument for low to medium throughput laboratories.

ASBEADBUG1

The D1000 is designed to rapidly homogenize, emulsify, suspend and disrupt biological samples. Ideal for use with microtubes, the homogenizer works well with samples from 0.1 mL to 250 mL (depending upon the generator probe used).

The D1000 is a rotor stator homogenizer, and works by drawing the sample, in liquid into the generator probe with the variable speed rotor, and then forcing it out through the slots in the stator. This achieves mechanical shearing of the sample. As the sample is repeatedly drawn up and forced through the stator, additional shearing takes place. Most samples are completely homogenized in 30 seconds or less. A powerful, 130 W motor drives the rotor at speeds from 8,500 to 30,000 rpm. Speed is adjustable in six steps to meet sample processing needs. A separate on/off switch allows the homogenizer to be left at the appropriate setting.

Generator probes are available in four sizes. The 5 mm and 7 mm diameter have a 50 mm length for use with samples in microtubes. The 10 mm x 115 mm is ideal for use with 15 and 50 mL tubes and 14 mm x 130 mm, for 50 mL tubes and vessels up to 250 mL. The unit is supplied with one each of the 5 mm and 7 mm generator probes. All the generator probes are made of stainless steel and can be sterilized by autoclaving.

Beadblaster™ 24 Microtube Homogenizer 
 
  • Fast, efficient homogenization in about 35 seconds
  • For all sample types, from soft tissue to bone
  • Mix up to 24 tubes simultaneously
  • Sealed 2.0 mL tubes-eliminates cross contamination

The Beadblaster™ 24 completely lyses, grinds, and homogenizes a broad variety of biological samples. Even the most difficult and resistant samples are fully homogenized, often in 35 seconds or less.

The stainless steel tube carrier subjects up to 24 samples to an optimized, high speed, 3D motion, producing high energy impacts between the samples and microbeads that releases cellular contents. After homogenization, samples can be centrifuged and the supernatant collected for further processing.

Operating parameters for the Beadblaster™ 24 are set and displayed digitally. To protect fragile, heat sensitive samples, the unit can be programmed to operate in shortened consecutive cycles with a rest period in between. Up to 50 such programs can be stored in memory and recalled for future use. A transparent lid allows for visualization of samples and features a mechanical lid lock that prevents opening when the Beadblaster™ 24 is in operation. A brushless motor reduces motor noise and provides maintenance free operation. See below for kits for use with the Beadblaster™ 24.

The BULLET BLENDER® enables you to homogenize, disrupt, or lyse up to 24 tissue or cell culture samples at a time. Load the samples into standard polypropylene tubes, then place them in the BULLET BLENDER. The "bullets" in the instrument vigorously strike all of the tubes and homogenize your sample in minutes. 

Includes:

  • Bullet Blender 5 Gold
  • Operator’s Manual
  • Power supply
  • Basic starter kit which includes:
    • Bead Sample Pack contains centrifuge tubes of several different types of beads
    • Spoon for dispensing beads
    • Sample pack of 5 mL Eppendorf tubes


Consistent and High Yield Results

The BULLET BLENDER homogenizer prepares up to 24 samples in just minutes. All of the samples are automatically homogenized in the same manner, with high yields, so there is very little variation from sample to sample.

No Cross-Contamination or Sample Loss

There are no probes or blades to cause cross contamination or sample loss, which also means there are no parts to clean between runs. The sample tubes are kept closed and self-contained during homogenization.

Samples Stay COOL

No cool down required. The Bullet Blender homogenizers use very little power due to the unique, patented design. There is very little heating of the samples because the sample tubes vibrate vigorously in air, keeping them cool, rather than being subjected to frictional heating as the tubes rub against the walls of a holder. Also, because the motor does not need to agitate any heavy platforms or plates, it is small and will last for many years.

So Easy To Use

Simply place your sample, beads and buffer in standard tubes, and load the tubes into the BULLET BLENDER homogenizer. Tune the extent of disruption by adjusting the run time and speed. Afterwards, place the sample tubes in a centrifuge to separate the lysate. No special holders are needed. There are no clamp plates or locking rings to fiddle with.


Risk Free Purchase

BULLET BLENDER homogenizers come with a 30 day money back guarantee and a 2 year warranty. The simple, reliable design enables the BULLET BLENDER to sell for one half the price of other agitation based instruments, yet provides an easier, quicker, cooler technique.

115 volt, with Safety Shield

The Mini-Beadbeater-16 is a high-energy cell disrupter designed to handle four to sixteen samples at a time.


The Mini-BeadBeater-16 disrupts microbial cells and plant and animal tissue by violently agitating four to sixteen 2 ml screw-cap microvials containing small glass, ceramic or steel beads and disruption buffer. Even resistant samples like yeast, spores or fibrous tissue are completely homogenized around 3 minutes in 0.1 to 1 ml of extraction medium. The non-foaming, aerosol-free method preserves enzymes and organelles. In the presence of nucleic acid extraction media such as phenol, Gu-SCN or a commercial kit solution, DNA or RNA is recovered in the highest possible yield. The method is ideal for PAGE, PCR applications and diagnostics using antibody or oligonucleotide probes. Because the beads and vials are disposable, there is absolutely Zero cross-contamination between samples - essential for PCR techniques.

Specifications

  • Power: 115 volts, 60 Hz, 7.5 amps or 230 volts, 50Hz, 3.7 amps.
  • 10' D X 16' W X 12' H, 40 lbs.
  • Shaking pattern: Uses proven, more efficient near horizontal vial orientation with shaking motion top-to-bottom (not side-to-side or vortex-like) shaking patterns.
  • Capacity: four to sixteen screw-cap microvials (0.5, 1.5 and 2.0 ml) each handling 1 to 400 mg (wet weight) bio-sample.
  • Shaking speed: 3450 oscillations/min.
  • Throw or vial displacement: 0.75 inches.
  • Timer: 0-5 minute digital, with auto reset.
  • Removable vial-holding cassette.
  • No imposed motor cool-down-time between each sample run.
  • The Mini-BeadBeater-16 uses standard screw-cap plastic microvials. Stainless steel microvials or a special reinforced polypropylene microvial (XXTuff vials) are available when dry- or cryo-milling with steel beads. Eight 7 ml vials can be processed with an accessory holding ring
