Semi-Continuous Tissue Disperser

The Semi-Continous Tissue Disperser delivers a high-quality homogenate of almost any plant or animal material.  Kilogram quantities of biological material are processed in minutes.  Operates in either a "single batch" mode -- or, for greater through-put,  a "semi-continuous" mode.

The Semi-Continous Tissue Disperser is a top-of-the-line domestic "garbage disposer"  modified to operate on a lab bench top - ready to be plugged into a 120-volt power socket. The basic unit's homogenization process has been enhanced by the addition of closed-loop plumbing.

While a standard garbage disposer is limited to processing biomaterial through its disposer elements in a single pass, BioSpec Products has enhanced the homogenization process by the addition of an external recycling loop on the machine.  Thus, during the homogenizing process the closed-loop plumbing enables multiple recycling of tissue.

Unlike other lab-scale homogenizers, the Semi-Continous Tissue Disperser requires little, if any,  prior tissue sample preparation (e.g., cutting, chopping, or trimming). It quickly homogenizes kilogram quantities of tissue in less than a minute and can manage almost any biomaterial. In an extreme example, a whole mouse carcass can be, bones, and all!
