The BULLET BLENDER® enables you to homogenize, disrupt, or lyse up to 24 tissue or cell culture samples at a time. Load the samples into standard polypropylene tubes, then place them in the BULLET BLENDER. The "bullets" in the instrument vigorously strike all of the tubes and homogenize your sample in minutes. NEW! The Bullet Blender homogenizer is now available with Dry Ice Cooling™ to keep your samples near 4°C!
The BULLET BLENDER homogenizer prepares up to 24 samples in less than 4 minutes. All of the samples are automatically homogenizedin the same manner, with high yields, so there is very little variation from sample to sample.
By adjusting bead size, density, time and speed, you can isolate proteins, nucleic acids, organelles or specific cells from tissue.
There are no probes or blades to cause cross contamination or sample loss, which also means there are no parts to clean between runs. The sample tubes are kept closed and self‐contained during homogenization.
No cool down required. The Bullet Blender homogenizers use very little power due to the unique patented design.There is very little heating of the samples because the sample tubes vibrate vigorously in air, keeping them cool, rather than being subjected to frictional heating as the tubes rub against the walls of a holder. Also, because the motor does not need to agitate any heavy platforms or plates, it is small and will last for many years. In addition, Dry Ice Cooling™ is available in the Gold models.
Simply place your sample, beads and buffer in standard tubes and load the tubes into the BULLET BLENDER homogenizer. Tune the extent of disruption by adjusting the run time and speed. Afterwards, place the sample tubes in a centrifuge to separate the lysate. No special holders are needed. There are no clamp plates nor locking rings to fiddle with.
