The FastPrep-24™ 5G Instrument is quite simply the most advanced sample preparation system ever!

The only high-speed benchtop homogenizer featuring microprocessor-controlled, Hi-Def Touch Screen Programming makes the 5G the ultimate in ease, speed and performance for sample preparation applications where it is necessary to grind, lyse, or homogenize difficult and routine samples, allowing easy and reproducible isolation of stable RNA, active proteins and full-length genomic DNA. Applications include but are not limited to:

  • biological tissues, fluids and excretions
  • cell cultures
  • environmental sample
  • other inorganic solid matrices.

The FastPrep-24™ 5G Instrument uses a unique, optimized motion to disrupt cells through the multidirectional, simultaneous beating of specialized Lysing Matrix beads on the sample material. Samples and buffers are added to Lysing Matrix Tubes containing specialized Lysing Matrix beads, supplied ready-to-use, certified nuclease-free and in a variety of sample type specific compositions.

The sample tubes remain securely sealed during the processing and the single use design eliminates cross-contamination. Program parameters are easily set using the touch screen user interface, or choose from many Recommended Programs stored on the 5G's onboard computer.

With a simple touch of the "run" button, in less than a minute your samples are completely lysed, super fast, every time! The highest power settings available ensure that DNA, RNA and proteins, even from difficult samples, are quickly liberated into the protective buffer, thus preserving their biological function.
