Homogenizers and Cell Disruptors
Homogenizers and cell disruptors are the perfect solutions for the homogenization needs of your lab. A homogenizer is a piece of laboratory equipment used for the homogenization of various types of material, biological or otherwise, such as tissue, plant, food, soil, along with many others. Many different models have been developed using various physical technologies for the disruption of the material you are working with. Whether you need lysing, mixing, grinding, or homogenizing, these high speed agitators will reduce even the most difficult and resistant samples.
Homogenizers serve the simple yet necessary function of making samples homogenous. That is to make the sample the same throughout, blending all independent components together into one homogeneous solution. This is often the necessary first step in the analysis of samples, and this is particularly true of biological samples. Before conducting analysis of the expression levels of a particular protein in a particular muscle tissue type, the whole tissue sample muscle first be broken down or homogenized using a homogenizer, to break up the various cellular components and membranes in order to free up the proteins and make a solution that has the same concentration of each component per mL of sample, thus giving the scientist a standard to work from.
Homogenizers and Cell Disruptors our Customers Prefer:
Scientific Industries Disruptor Genie - Cell Disruptor that is Completely Efficient and Reliable
The patented Disruptor Genie provides multi-directional action, which simultaneously agitates and vortexes at high speed, dramatically increasing cell disruption or sample resuspension efficiency. Made in the U.S.A. The Digital version of this cell disruptor provides complete control over speed and time. Ideal for releasing biological molecules from inside a cell. More than vortexing alone patented multi-directional action simultaneously agitates and vortexes at high-speed producing greater yields in less time. Supplied with Universal Microtube Holder (tubes not included) and Pop-off Cup.
Benchmark BeadBug Microtube Homogenizer - Extremely Compact
Benchmark offers a number of different homogenization units. The Benchmark BeadBug Microtube is a high energy benchtop unit that sets the performance standard for personal sized cell disruption and lysis homogenization instruments.
Benchmark BeadBlaster 24 Homogenizer - Fast and Efficient
The Benchmark 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.
