Rotor/Stator Homogenizers

This tool works best at disrupting soft tissue samples. Cell disruption is very fast.  Unlike other mechanical methods of cell disruption very little heat is formed during homogenization.  This method does not lyse microorganisms...a characteristic that can be used to recover viable microbes from homogenized tissue samples. Not ideal for high throughput applications because the probe must be decontaminated or replaced after each use.

One of the best devices for making emulsions.

BeadBeater

BeadBeater

The BeadBeater is the ultimate laboratory-scale homogenizer for disrupting aqueous suspensions of yeast, fungi or bacteria.  Complete cell lysis of 10-80 g (wet weight) of cells is achieved in about three minutes of operation.

The BeadBeater comes complete with a 350 ml polycarbonate chamber, rotor assembly, motor base, ice-water cooling jacket, and your choice of one pound of glass beads...

Select the catalog number ending in...

-101 for 0.1 mm glass beads

-105 for 0.5 mm glass beads

-110 for 1.0 mm glass beads

Also, if the BeadBeater is to be used in countries with a 220-240 volt power supply, please select the catalog number containing "EUR."

Electric Juicer

Electric Juicer

Ideal for a one step preparation of cell lysate from most fruits and vegetables.  Suitable tissues include tubers, squash, leafy tissues, fruits and pods.  One of the few methods that do not require added liquid to obtain a cell free extract.  Consequently, the highly concentrated proteins and biochemicals in the homogenate optimize down-stream purification or analysis steps.  Not suitable for extracting animal tissue.

Electric Meat Grinder

Electric Meat Grinder

This classic tool has two applications in the molecular biology area:  1) Preparing large amounts tissue (100g - >1 kg) for subsequent fast and complete cell lysis using a beadbeater, ultrasonicator, rotor-stator machine or high shear press and 2) recovering large quanties of viable single cells following incubation of the dispersed tissue with proteolytic enzymes that digest extracellular matrix.

Semi-Continuous Tissue Disperser

Semi-Continuous Tissue Disperser

A modified, top-of-the-line domestic waste disposer that has been modified to sit operate top of the lab bench - ready to be plugged into a 110 V power socket.  Closed-loop plumbing has been installed on the basic unit to permit recycling the tissue sample contents.  The Semi-Continous Tissue Disperser delivers a high-quality homogenate of almost any plant or animal material.  Kilogram quantities of material can be processed in minutes in either batch- or semi-continuous mode.  Operates at room temperature or in a cold room.

Tissue-Tearor

Tissue-Tearor

The Tissue-Tearor is a rotor/stator type tissue homogenizer which can rapidly homogenize, disrupt, and emulsify plant and animal samples in 0.5 - 1000 ml of liquid.  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.  Rotor/stator homogenizers cannot efficiently disrupt microorganisms.  This "limitation" can be an advantage if you want to homogenize or disperse tissue sample (or soil or waste samples) in order to recover viable bacteria or viruses for plating and analysis.

If you need a 230 volt unit, please select models that end in EUR.  When ordering select one of our four different probe sizes - 04, 07, XL, and 14. Unlike most competitive Brands of rotor-stator homogenizer, THE TISSUE-TEAROR COMES COMPLETE WITH BOTH THE HIGH-SPEED MOTOR AND ONE STAINLESS STEEL PROBE OF YOUR CHOICE.  See chart below for probe selection guidance. Additional probes are available.  All are interchangeable with the TT motor unit.  A cord-less variety of the TissueTearor is also available with model numbers ending in CL.
