Product News: The New GentleMACS Octo Dissociator Increases the Reproducibility of your Cell-Based or Molecular Experiments.

16 Aug 2011

The new gentleMACS Octo Dissociator is taking tissue dissociation to the next level. With pre-set programs for ease of use and flexibility with customisable programs, Miltenyi Biotec has revolutionised tissue dissociation, increasing the reproducibility of your cell-based or molecular experiments.

The well-established gentleMACS Technology is already used by more than 10,000 satisfied customers in biotech, pharma, and academia. This benchtop instrument is perfect for the automated and standardised tissue dissociation or homogenisation of up to eight samples.

Single-cell suspensions or thorough homogenates from virtually any tissues are easily and reproducibly obtained using the unique C Tubes or M Tubes. These single-use gentleMACS tubes allow sample preparation in a closed and sterile system, providing a high level of user safety and minimise cross-contamination.

In addition to the numerous optimised and ready-to-use gentleMACS Programs, the gentleMACS Octo Dissociator allows the user to develop individualised programs for almost any biological material. The instrument allows independent use of all eight tube positions; different programs can be selected and run individually which saves time by allowing utilisation of pre-set programs for the dissociation of most frequently investigated tissues.
