"Extremely accurate and easy to use. Expensive, but in my opinion, the best choice."
The Bioruptor® Pico is the new next-generation all-in-one shearing device, highly optimized for DNA shearing for next-generation sequencing, chromatin shearing for ChIP-seq applications, RNA shearing, protein extraction, and cell/tissue lysis. The Pico is the shearing device of choice for sequencing applications, providing optimal yields, lengths, and consistency and excels in shearing different fragment size ranges, which are frequently required for downstream applications (e.g. bridge amplification) for sequencing. Moreover, the Pico provides flexibility in other applications saving the need to buy additional equipment. Unlike competing systems, the Pico has high throughput capabilities and can process up to 12 samples at once.
The only ultrasonicator you’ll ever need, optimized for:
- Next-Generation Sequencing (5 - 100 µl)
- Chromatin shearing (10 µl - 2 ml)
- RNA shearing
- Protein extraction
- Tissue and cell lysis
- Simultaneous sonication of 12 samples
- Small and light
