It has become a basic instrument in our lab
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area: Detection of pathogens in animal samples

"Precellys 24 is a useful tissue homogenizer. It's very versatile due to the wide range of lysing kits available, and it is also easy to use. "

Brilliant product in sample homogenization
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Extract DNA, RNA, proteins, and metabolites in plant tissues (Arabidopsis, tobacco, and linum)

"It is very easy to use. The herbal plant tissues can be well-homogenized within a minute. The extracts of RNA and proteins showed high qualities. Furthermore, all the downstream analyses, including qRT-PCR, Western blots, and metabolite quantification, were highly reproducible. It is worthy to have one in lab."

  • Application Area:Efficient cell lysis

"We use our system primarily for cell homogenization and analysis of cellular metabolites and proteins. For these purposes this machine works well in comparison to spiked samples of known metabolites etc. We have also used this for RNA isolation without any optimization and our initial results suggested RNA degradation (ratio of rRNA). We didn't bother optimizing conditions as traditional RNA extraction method was later proved to be sufficient. We have had this machine for over 5 years and have not required any service support. So can’t comment on after sales/ support. We have also tried this machine with OEM bead-tubes and they work fine. Over all it is okay at what it does. "

  • Application Area:Biotechnology

"Precellys is very useful for protein and RNA extraction. My best experience was with rat aortic rings, which normally does not work with traditional homogenizer. For this extraction you must use liquid nitrogen to homogenate it. However, you lose significant samples after each extraction. Besides, with liquid nitrogen you have to waste so much time. With Precellys, you only need to use ceramic spheres and select the strongest Precellys option."

  • Application Area:Tissue Homogenization

"Before using this product, we were doing all the homogenization manually and of course we had big variations between samples, especially after doing dozens of them in a row. Now with our Precellys 24 those variations are a lot less and we can process more samples in less time. That's what we call a win/win situation."

  • Application Area:Human Coronary Artery Homogenization

"The homogenization tubes specifically suggested by manufacturer´s web site to work with blood vessel homogenization did not easily homogenize healthy coronaries, and with calcified atherosclerotic coronaries the homogenization was even more incomplete. Frankly, I was very disappointed at the homogenization performance and with the poor level of manufacturer user manual (the total lack of it) at the time that I used Precellys."

  • Application Area:Large Molecule Discovery

"The ability of the Precellys 24 Dual to process two different sized samples (2mL and 7mL tubes) makes it the only homogenizer I can justify owning. It is super easy to scale up from small preps to the bulk size, without needing a second instrument. It runs like it was supposed to every time it is used. The reinforced tube option for some of the lysing kits makes processing difficult or tough samples possible."

Review date: 30 Jun 2014 | Precellys®24
The Precellys® 24 developed by Bertin Technologies is an easy handling and reliable system dedicated to extraction of DNA, RNA, proteins or drugs.

It guarantees an efficient homogenization with high yield and quality results compatible with all analysis methods. This high-throughput bead-beating homogenizer can simultaneously grind up to 24 tubes of 2 ml only in few seconds all in retaining molecular integrity. The single-use tubes prevent samples from any cross contamination. With beads and standard protocols specific to each application, a large range of biological samples can be grinded, homogenized or lysed. Even fragile microorganisms, and hard tissues such as bones and hair.
