Fast, easy and efficient
Typical homogenization time is 30 seconds for a large majority of samples. Nucleic acid or proteins are separated from the tissue matrix, and pipetted after a short centrifugation step to pellet the debris.
Adapted protocols and consumables from soft to hard tissues (micro-organisms, animal or plant tissues).
Thanks to the highest speed motion in the market, Precellys 24-Dual allows the grinding of challenging tissues like bones, hair, cartilage, skin etc.
Adjust speed and beads for:
- Dry grinding
- Homogenization from fresh or snap-frozen tissues
- Lysis of micro-organisms
- Dissociation of living bacteria
During motion, mechanical impacts between beads and sample can generate heat. With the Precellys 24, the homogenization process is so quick that the temperature does not reach denaturation levels. Nevertheless, for sensitive molecules, it is important to master this generation of heat.
The Cryolys is a cooling option for the Precellys®24-Dual. Cold air (-50°C) is sprayed around the tubes so that temperature inside the tubes remains at approximately 4°C.
Standard & Design for daily lab operations
Precellys 24-Dual has been designed for biological sample preparation. Biological space is entirely separated from the mechanical parts preventing any inside contamination. Also individual sealed tubes prevents cross contamination between sample preparations.
When the protocol is set up and validated, the sample preparation process remains the same with no variation in analysis results, on a time basis, nor users. It was specifically developed and designed to be used in L3 laboratory under high throughput conditions, 50 to 100 runs per day.
