The meat grinder reduces fresh muscle and animal organ tissue to piece about 1 mm in cross section. The cutting action is much like that of a pair of scissors. During this gentle dispersion process a high proportion of the tissue cells remain intact and viable. This classic tool has two applications in the molecular biology area: 1) Preparing large amounts tissue (100- >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.
A top-of-the-line domestic waste disposer modified to sit on a lab bench. Close loop plumbing has been added to recycle 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 using a batch-wise or in a semi-continuous mode. Can be operated at room temperature or a cold room.
