Amazing bead ruptor
Application Area: For our in vivo animal studies
"The Bead Ruptor 12 by OMNI International Inc. is a very easy to use piece of equipment. We use it several times a day every week since over 2 years ago and it is still like new. It is very economical and durable. It is versatile and powerful, and the tissue is completely disrupted. You can simultaneously use 2ml and 12 ml tubes and the speed and cycles can be adjusted accordingly. One of the best features is that this homogenizer does not overheat so you do not need to do a cool down period between different cycles of homogenization. It is a great value for this amazing piece of equipment."
The Bead Ruptor 12 is the most powerful and economical bead mill homogenizer available today. It is an ideal solution for a variety of applications that require grinding, lysing, and homogenization of biological samples prior to molecular extraction.
Using disposable sample tubes pre-filled with a variety of lysing beads, the Bead Ruptor 12 vigorously and uniformly shakes up to 16 tubes at a time providing an efficient, consistent homogenization and high-yield. Unlike most other bead mill homogenizers, the Bead Ruptor 12 does not require a cool down period between runs. This means more samples can be processed in a smaller amount of time.
Benefits of the Bead Ruptor 12 Homogenizer include:
Compelling performance at a compelling price
The Bead Ruptor 12 is designed with a unique tube carriage motion to ensure that the intra-tube bead movement reduces swirling and results in the a high bead impact force. The Bead Ruptor 12 is more powerful than competitor bead mills that are twice the cost making it an excellent solution for any lab working with tissues or cellular material.
Bead impact forces generated by commercially available bead mills.
Bead impact forces are calculated as a function of tube acceleration, tube displacement and the motor force applied to the tube. The Bead Ruptor 12 and Bead Ruptor Elite have the broadest force range and produce the highest impact forces of any bead mill on the market. This results in an increased processing efficiency on the Bead Ruptor platforms
Unique snap in tube carriage design
The Bead Ruptor 12 eliminates the tedious task of screwing down finger plates which are present other bead mills. The patent pending snap in tube carriage allows tubes to be “snapped in” and “snapped out” easily thus decreasing workload and increasing safety. The Bead Ruptor 12 is an ideal bead mill for core laboratories or as a shared resource with its short learning curve and ease of use.
Wide range of bead kits for any sample type
Omni International offers users ultimate flexibility with a range of bead beating tubes and lysing matrices to support homogenization of any sample type.
