Efficient and Quick Homogenization for Uniform Cell Lysis in Microbiomics

30 November 2018

A uniform homogenization of cells ensures comprehensive cell lysis and influences all downstream applications, especially in microbiomics. Emily Putnam, Assistant Manager of Services at Zymo Research, speaks about efficient homogenization and lysis conditions to study microbial communities. Using the Precellys system by Bertin Instruments reduced homogenization time down to 1 minute as compared to traditional methods that need 25 minutes.
