Application Note: Improving Protein Extraction Efficiency from Porcine Cardiac Tissue using the Precellys® 24-Dual
20 August 2015

This application note demonstrates the efficiency of cardiac tissue homogenization using the Polytron® and Precellys® homogenizers. Tissue biomarkers are commonly analyzed during pre-clinical pharmacology studies, and tissue homogenization is a critical step in minimizing experimental variability. Cardiac tissue is difficult to homogenize and prone to variable protein recovery.
