Homogenizers, Compact BeadBug™ Personal and BeadBug™ 6-Position Microtube Bead Grinders

  Overview

The BeadBug Microtube Homogenizer is very compact, but has an extremely powerful mixing action for lysis, grinding or homogenization. It is faster and more effective than tissue grinders and it eliminates the cross contamination associated with hand held homogenizers.

Disposable 2 mL screw cap microtubes contain hardened micro-beads chosen specifically for a sample type. The high energy mixing action causes rapid cell disruption through relentless high velocity impact with the beads. Simultaneous homogenization can take place within seconds in up to three samples.

Pre-filled tube kits are available with standard glass beads (acid washed), triple-pure high impact zirconium beads (acid washed, heat treated and tested nuclease free) or stainless steel beads (acid washed) of various diameters.

The BeadBug™ 6 joins the large capacity BeadBlaster™ 24 and personal sized BeadBug™ as the newest member of the Benchmark homogenizer line. BeadBug 6 utilizes a three dimensional shaking motion to disrupt samples. This motion, when combined with beads of the appropriate size and material, causes high velocity impacts with the sample and is an extremely fast and efficient method for releasing cellular contents, including nucleic acids and proteins.

Designed to fit the needs of medium throughput laboratories, the BeadBug 6 can simultaneously process up to six samples in 2.0ml tubes. With optional adapters,the unit will also accept two 5.0ml tubes. A full range of bead materials and sizes are available in both prefilled tubes and in bulk to meet all your sample processing needs.

Many different sample types, from cells in culture to organ tissues and bone can be homogenized in the BeadBug 6, most within 45 seconds. Programming the unit is very simple – just set the speed, time, number of cycles and pause between cycles, then press start. For convenience, the last programmed parameters remain in memory for repeated runs.

Sealed tubes prevent cross contamination in the BeadBug 6. Samples are simply loaded into the tubes along with the beads and placed in the unit for processing. After homogenization, tubes are spun briefly in a centrifuge, and the lysate removed with a pipette.
Features of the BeadBug Personal and 6-Position Microtube Homogenizers:
  • Powerful mixing action
  • Fast bead homogenization is more effective than tissue grinders
  • Mix up to three tubes (BeadBug Personal) or 6 tubes (BeadBug 6-Position) simultaneously
  • Eliminate cross contamination due to hand held homogenizers
  • Very compact, less than 7 inches wide (BeadBug Personal)
  • Developed for samples such as soft tissue or bone too tough to be homogenized in a standard lab vortexer
  • Full range of bead materials and sizes are available
