Semi-Continuous Tissue Disperser

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.

Waste disposers are a sub-group of rotor-stator homogenizers.  A rapidly rotating platform turning at high speed (the "rotor") forces Biomaterial through a non-moving stainless steel sleeve containing an array of slits or holes (the "stator") where it is sheared and cut into tiny pieces.  While a standard waste disposer process biomaterial in a single pass through the disposer's elements, BioSpec's added an external recycling loop on the machine and a large stainless steel receiving container to greatly improve the homogenization process.

Unlike most lab homogenizers, the SemiContinous Tissue Disperser requires little sample preparation prior to homogenization and can homogenize kilogram quantities of tissue in minutes.  The unit handles almost any kind of soft or flexable biomaterial - even homogenizing an entire mouse carcass...skin, bones and all!
