Effective, easy and a great time saver!
Application Area:Tissue disruption for proteomics and metabolomics
"The Tissuelyzer II is a vital part of all out lab workflows. It's suitable for disruption of all tissues we've tried, even tough tissues such as aorta, and provides good, reproducible extraction of tissues and metabolites in a quick, user friendly protocol."
The TissueLyser II simultaneously disrupts multiple biological samples through high-speed shaking in plastic tubes with stainless steel, tungsten carbide, or glass beads. Using the appropriate adapter set, up to 48 or 192 samples can be processed at the same time. Alternatively, a grinding jar set can be used to process large samples. A range of beads, bead dispensers, and collection microtubes and caps are also available.
All TissueLyser II accessories, including adapter sets, are also compatible with the TissueLyser (no longer available).
