607, Mini-BeadBeater-16,

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

The Bio-Pulverizer reduces tissue hard-frozen in liquid nitrogen to a fine powder. Called freeze-fracturing, this method is especially useful for tough, fibrous tissues such as skin, cartilage, cornea, etc. The Bio-Pulverizer consists of a hole machined in a stainless steel base, into which fits a special piston. In a typical procedure, up to 10g of animal or plant tissue is hard-frozen in liquid nitrogen and placed in the pre-chilled Bio-Pulverizer. The piston is mounted on an easy to use trigger mechanism that is squeezed to deliver a blow to the brittle tissue reducing it to a fine powder. Freeze fracturing with the Bio-Pulverizer is also useful for extracting labile tissue metabolites and as a preliminary step to other homogenization techniques. 2 year warranty

How the Bio-Pulverizer Works

  • Place the Bio-Pulverizer in the insulated container and cool thoroughly with either liquid nitrogen (preferred) or a dry-ice/alcohol mixture.
  • Place pre-frozen tissue in the well of the mortar. Re-insert the pestle into the well.
  • Remove the mortar from the insulated container and pulverize the tissue with one or two blows to the pestle.
  • Invert the mortar and empty the powdered contents for subsequent homogenization or extraction procedure.

The Tissue-Tearor is a rotor/stator type tissue homogenizer which can rapidly homogenize, disperse, and emulsify samples in 0.2 - 1000 ml of liquid. During operation, the suspended material is drawn into the core of the homogenizer by a rotor turning at up to 35,000 rpm. The material is repeatedly cycled through six narrow slits in the stator where it is rapidly sheared and disintegrated by high frequency mechanical action. Complete homogenization of tissues (muscle, liver, breast tissue, etc.) is usually achieved in ten to thirty seconds. Little, if any, heat is produced during the process.

Unlike most other Brands of rotor/stator type homogenizers, the Tissue-Tearor comes complete - that is, with both a motor and a probe (aka, generator, dispersing tool) - both included in one price.

Specifications:

  • Sample Volume Range: 0.3 to 1000 ml, depending on the probe selected (see table below).
  • Universal Motor: 120 VAC, 138 watts or , for overseas applications, 230VAC2
  • Variable Speed: 5,000 to 35,000 rpm, incremented by 5000 rpm.
  • Probes made of Type 316 Stainless Steel with flurocarbon bushings.
  • Weight: Approximately 1/2 Kg.

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.
