Pulverizers

BioPulverizer

BioPulverizer

Pulverizers quickly fragment hard frozen tissue samples into pieces the size of grains of sand or smaller. The benefit is rapid cell lysis in lytic solutions or by mechanical homogenizers. For difficult tissues such as tendon, skin, and tumors it is often 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). There are four different hand-operated BioPulverizer for quickly pulverizing 10 mg to 10 g of frozen tissue. Cat. No. 59012N, BioPulverizer, capacity 10-100mg Cat. No. 59013N, BioPulverizer, capacity 0.1-1g Cat. No. 59014N, BioPulverizer, capacity 1-10g Cat. No. 59012MS, MultiSample BioPulverizer, 12 wells, capacity 10-100mg per well* *Twelve pestles are included with each 59012MS.  Read more >

BioSqueezer

BioSqueezer

The BioSqueezer is used to 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.   Read more >

CryogenicTissueGrinder

CryogenicTissueGrinder

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. Cat. No. CTG111, 120 volts  Read more >
