The most recent addition to Benchmark Scientific’s range of homogenisers, the BeadBug™ 6 microtube homogeniser disrupts up to 6 2.0ml tube samples using a 3 dimensional shaking motion. Designed to fit the needs of medium throughput laboratories, the BeadBug 6 can simultaneously process up to six samples in 2.0ml tubes. With (also two 5.0ml tubes with the use of optional adaptors).
A variety of sample types (including bone and organ tissue) can be quickly and easily homogenised with the Beadbug™ 6. It’s also easily programmed by setting the number of cycles, pause between cycles, desired speed and time before pressing start. Cross contamination is prevented with the use of sealed tubes, then after homogenisation tubes are spun briefly in a centrifuge and the lysate removed with a pipette.
