The Bullet Blender Tissue Homogenizer is a laboratory instrument used for efficient and rapid homogenization of tissues and other biological samples.
It is a versatile and powerful instrument that can homogenize samples ranging from soft to tough tissues, including plant, animal, and bacterial tissues.
Here are some key features of this instrument:
- Design: The Bullet Blender Tissue Homogenizer is designed with a unique bullet-shaped vessel that contains specialized beads that help to homogenize samples. The instrument can accommodate different sized tubes, ranging from 0.5 ml to 50 ml.
- Homogenization method: The homogenization method used in the Bullet Blender Tissue Homogenizer is bead beating. This method involves the use of beads of different sizes and materials that are added to the sample and shaken vigorously to break down the tissues.
- Efficiency: The Bullet Blender Tissue Homogenizer is highly efficient, capable of homogenizing samples in just a few seconds to a few minutes, depending on the sample type and size. The instrument can also homogenize multiple samples simultaneously, allowing for high throughput processing.
- Versatility: The Bullet Blender Tissue Homogenizer is a versatile instrument that can be used for a wide range of applications, including DNA and RNA extraction, protein isolation, cell lysis, and tissue homogenization.
- User-friendly: The instrument is user-friendly, with a simple interface that allows for easy programming of the homogenization parameters. It also features a safety interlock mechanism that ensures the instrument stops when the lid is opened.
- Cleaning: The Bullet Blender Tissue Homogenizer is easy to clean, with the bullet-shaped vessel and beads being autoclavable, and the instrument’s surface can be easily wiped down with a damp cloth.
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. The Bullet Blender homogenizer Gold models keep samples at 4°C!
