BioPulverizer

BioPulverizer

The BioPulverizer quickly fragments hard frozen tissue samples into tiny pieces the size of grains of sand or course powder.  The primary benefit of pulverizing pieces of tissue is to optimize subsequent rapid and complete cell lysis using lytic solutions or mechanical homogenizers. For difficult tissues such as tendon, skin, and tumors it is an essential step (see https://www.invitrogen.com/site/us/en/home/References/Ambion-Tech-Support/rna-isolation/tech-notes/isolation-of-total-rna-from-difficult-tissues.html). The BioPulverizer is also used at room temperature to fragment friable, dry biomaterial such as non-oily seeds, bone and teeth.
  
There are four different hand-operated BioPulverizers for quickly pulverizing 10 mg to 10 g of frozen tissue.

Cat. No. 59012N, BioPulverizer, capacity 10-100mg
Cat. No. 59013N, BioPulverizer, capacity 0.1-1g
Cat. No. 59014N, BioPulverizer, capacity 1-10g
Cat. No. 59012MS, MultiSample BioPulverizer, 12 wells, capacity 10-100mg per well*

*Twelve pestles are included with each 59012MS.

BioSqueezer

BioSqueezer

The BioSqueezer is used to quickly freeze 10-100 mg of soft animal and human tissue.  Fresh tissue is compressed into a thin disc about the size of a small coin under the pressure of a stainless steel clamp head that has been pre-cooled in liquid nitrogen or dry ice.   Freezing occurs in a few milliseconds, thus giving a snapshot of  metabolic events in the cells.  The hard frozen disc is easily fragmented or ground without thawing for subsequent extraction of labile nucleic acids, proteins and intracellular metabolite products.

Manual Microplate Bead Loader

Manual Microplate Bead Loader

The Manual Deep Well Microplate Loader is a simple device.  A one ml deep well microplate is filled to the top with beads.  A 'receiving' two ml deep well microplate is accurately positioned over the filled wells of the one ml microplate and the pair is inverted.  The two well microplate is now loaded with exactly one ml of beads in each well.  To facilitate this fill and flip method, a stainless steel frame is provided to assure proper positioning of the 'donor' microplate to the 'receiving' microplate.  Also included is a spatula, a one ml 'donor' microplate and a special tray designed to catch and recover excess beads.
