Great, reproducible results from an easy to use product
Application Area: Human and mouse tissue homogenization for RNA isolation
"We have optimized protocols for most of our tissues, but have two more to optimize. So far, we’ve received great RIN quality and more reproducible results with mouse tissue than ever before in our lab. Each tissue type needs optimization, this is very easy to do and the machine is quite user friendly. Customer and tech support have been super supportive and help with any questions I have."
Precellys® 24 Touch is the ideal lab homogenizer to prepare any kind of biological sample, from the softest to the hardest, regardless of its origin (animal tissues, plant tissues, microorganisms…). It can treat up to 24 samples at a time and has been validated on more than 1,500 different samples: from brain, muscle, and heart samples, to very hard material such as bones, hair, and seeds.
The intuitive touchscreen interface of Precellys® 24 Touch makes it really easy to use. Thanks to its exclusive vacuum-based tube locking system and its specific design, Precellys® 24 Touch is compliant with the safety requirements of the harshest lab environments, such as BSL3.
With its powerful figure-8 multi-directional motion, Precellys® 24 Touch provides high energy to the beads contained in the tubes, allowing the homogenization of the samples in a few seconds (~30 sec) at speeds ranging from 4000 to 6800 rpm. Samples can then be processed for further analysis amongst a wide variety of techniques dedicated to DNA/RNA (PCR, electrophoresis, NGS, chips, etc), protein (blotting, mass spectrometry, etc.), or metabolites analyses (chromatography, etc.).
