Great tool! I can´t live without it! My experiments won´t be the same!
Application Area: Forensics and Aging
"Great for any kind of tissue samples! I have been using it for teeth and I get a very good concentration of DNA, RNA and proteins."

Without it my experiment time would lengthen and the efficiency reduced.
Application Area:Cell lysis for RNA/DNA/Protein isolation
"Along with the FastPrep kits (which include tubes with lysis materials and proprietary solutions for extraction), the FastPrep machine works expertly to mechanically and chemically break cells (eukaryotic and prokaryotic, alike, depending on the matrix in the tube) efficiently. From this starting point, I am able to isolate the DNA/RNA/protein samples necessary for my work. I highly recommend the machine in combination with the kit if you are in the market for obtaining such a system."

Good results, It can be used in a wide variety of samples!
Application Area:extracting DNA or proteins from plants, fungi, bacteria
"The equipment reduces considerably the extraction time, in 30-90 seconds 24 samples can be processed with a high reproducibility. It is easy and friendly to use. "

"This product is amazing, and as a graduate student who has to do the bulk of the tissue preparation in lab, the amount of time FastPrep saves me is greatly appreciated."
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.
