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 positioned, up-side-down, over the filled one ml microplate and the pair is manually 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 accurate 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.
The Suction 96-well, deep well Microplate Bead Loader operates the fastest of the three bead loader we offer. Beads can be loaded into 96 deep well microplates at a rate of about 10 microplates per minute. It is designed to load sherical glass or ceramic beads only (i.e., not irregularly shaped particles, not steel beads). The loader is compatible with all sized 96-well, deep well microplates and comes complete with a 96-nozzle loading manifold, a 110 VAC electrical suction unit and a foot switch controller.

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.

The BioSqueezer is used to snap freeze (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.

The CryogenicTissueGrinder is a high speed blade mill that grinds 0.5-10 grams of plant, animal and human tissue with high water content to a fine powder in the presence of dry ice. The tissue becomes brittle at solid CO2 temperatures. A sample hit with a hammer (or in the case of the CTG111, a spinning blade) fragments into tiny pieces in a matter of seconds.

A low cost, disposable, tissue disperser for up to 100 mg samples of soft tissue (e.g., liver, brain and muscle). The Dueling Syringes™ tissue disperser is a significant improvement over the classic "syringe-needle-syringe" method of tissue dispersion. The needle is replaced with an embedded 500 micron stainless steel screen inside a 1 ml polycarbonate syringe. Manual passage of the sample back and forth through the screen is fast, gentle and efficient. Sold as a pack of five pairs of syringes.
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.
The meat grinder reduces fresh muscle and animal organ tissue to piece about 1 mm in cross section. Most of the tissue cells remain intact. This classic tool is useful for preparing large amounts tissue (100- >1 kg) for complete homogenization and cell

The Lever Tissue Press is a classic garlic press, enhanced by addition of a silicone-rubber gasket to the bottom of the lever press piston and the inclusion of an extra "can" to facilitate processing of multiple samples. It efficiently macerates or mechanically disaggregates 5 to 50 grams of fresh, soft plant or animal tissue. By 'soft' we mean nonfibrous tissue. Acceptible examples are muscle, brain, liver, plant fruits, some plant roots and tubers. Tough or fibrous tissues like leaves, skin or bone will not pass through the holes in the stainless steel can..
