- Fast, efficient homogenization in about 35 seconds
- For all sample types, from soft tissue to bone
- Mix up to 24 tubes simultaneously
- Sealed 2.0ml 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 micro-beads to release 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 owhen the BeadBlaster is in operation. A brushless motor reduces motor noise and provides maintenance free operation.
Benchmark offers an assortment of prefilled tube kits for a variety of sample types. The popular Triple-Pure™ kits include acid washed, heat treated, zirconium beads. The beads are tested to be free of nucleases, making them ideal for molecular biology applications. A convenient starter kit (D1032-SK) is available to accommodate a broad range of sample types and optimize applications.
The Benchmark BeadBlaster 24R is a high capacity, refrigerated bead homogenizer that meets a range of sample needs. The true refrigeration allows for safely processing temperature sensitive samples.
Operating parameters for the BeadBlaster 24R are set and displayed digitally. Up to 50 homogenization profiles can be stored in memory and recalled for future use. A mechanical lid lock prevents opening when the BeadBlaster 24R is in operation. A powerful compressor maintains chamber temperature while the brushless motor provides quiet maintenance-free operation. High speed, 3D rotation of the steel tube carrier imparts high energy impacts between the beads and samples to release cellular contents.
A wide assortment of prefilled tube kits are available for processing a range of sample types and optimizing applications. An optional tube holder for 12x5ml tubes is also available.
