Good product for homogenization and extraction.
Rating: 3.3

  • Application Area: Metabolomics

"Easy to use, for grinding and homogenization of different matrices. Quick and reproducible, Wide choice of grinding tubes. Fast and responsive after-sales support. Small defect, the QuickPrep 24 x 2 mL holder is fragile if it is not properly positioned."

The best way I know to lyse tough samples with high reproducibility.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Proteomics and genomics

"Really fast and easy to use, noise level quite low compared to the power of the instrument, does not use much bench space. Moreover the efficiency and reproducibility of the results are outstanding. Once you try it, you start wandering how you could do without it. My only regret is the lid closing system, the striker bolt is very fragile and needs to be replaced quite often. Fortunately, you get two of them as spare parts when you buy the instrument and, should you need more, they are very cheap and the great after-sales service will help you deal with that."

Essential equipment in our lab!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Remove bacterial biofilm from substrate, cell lysis for DNA / RNA extraction

"Very easy to use and has stood up to almost daily use for two years. Also easy to clean/decontaminate, which is important in a containment lab. After sales support has been used to select lysing matrices for a range of applications, very happy with advice and willingness to send samples of tubes/matrices so we can optimize protocols."

Good efficiency and makes life easier.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Hard tissue grinding

"It is so much easier, shorter and safer to use this instrument than to use liquid nitrogen and mortar/pestle. We use it for hard tissues like cartilage and bone and it works very well for following RNA and protein preparation."

Good product, but can be improved.
Rating: 2.3

  • Application Area:Cell grinding

"We are satisfied with the grinding efficiency. We use multiple rounds of shaking, and some plastic parts e.g., the lid lock, and tightening screw are sometimes broken. We need to replace these parts asap, however the support team's reaction is very slow, and it slows down our project (this was a few years ago, and we have not used the machine since then. Therefore the customer service might be better now). In summary: 1. It would be great if you make a stronger machine. 2. It would be great if your customer service was faster."

  • Application Area:Homogenization of samples for DNA and RNA extraction

"This device provides the ability to obtain reproducible results, since the program of homogenization may be stored in the system memory. The lysing matrixes provide homogenization of any sample."

Without it my experiment time would lengthen and the efficiency reduced.
Rating: 5.0

  • 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."

The FastPrep-24™ 5G Instrument is quite simply the most advanced sample preparation system ever!

 

The only high-speed benchtop homogenizer featuring microprocessor-controlled, Hi-Def Touch Screen Programming makes the 5G the ultimate in ease, speed and performance for sample preparation applications where it is necessary to grind, lyse, or homogenize difficult and routine samples, allowing easy and reproducible isolation of stable RNA, active proteins and full-length genomic DNA. Applications include but are not limited to:

  • biological tissues, fluids and excretions
  • cell cultures
  • environmental sample
  • other inorganic solid matrices.

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.

FastPrep-24™ 5G Exclusive Features

  • Powerful - Highest speed range available, ideal for a wide range of applications and protects your sample
  • Optimized - Cycle and pause programmable for true walk-away operation
  • Convenient - >70 Recommended Programs for easy optimizations
  • Intuitive - Interactive user-friendly interface and touchscreen
  • Flexible - Optional sample holders allow processing from 2 - 50 mL tubes, under ambient or cryogenic conditions
  • Smart - Integrated USB Port allows for software updates to be installed, and run history data to be downloaded to a laptop
  • Safe - Electromechanical dome latch automatically secures processing chamber, with a simple finger touch
  • Complete - Lysing Matrix Tubes and Purification Kits from One Source
