This tool works well at disrupting soft tissue samples. Cell disruption is very fast. Unlike most mechanical methods of cell disruption very little heat is formed during homogeniztion. 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.
The BioHomogenizer is a rotor-stator type tissue homogenizer designed to rapidly homogenize, disperse, and emulsify biological samples in aqueous media from 1 to 1000 ml. The BioHomogenizer includes both the motor and probe.

A modified, top-of-the-line domestic waste disposer made ready to plug in on top of a lab bench. Closed loop plumbing has been added to permit recycling the 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 a batch-wise or a semi-continuous mode. Operates at room temperature or in a cold room.
The Tissue-Tearor is a rotor/stator type tissue homogenizer which can rapidly homogenize, disrupt, and emulsify 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.
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.
