Bead mills are typically used for the analysis laboratory samples that are very difficult to disrupt with standard mechanical homogenizers. The combination of the rotational effect and the grinding beads produces a faster, more effective lysing / homogenization process for biological samples.
High shear laboratory homogenizers are designed to process tough samples quickly and efficiently without compromising the sample. Faster homogenization times mean less chance of heat degradation to the sample. These homogenizer motors are available in hand held or stand mounted configurations with high speeds of up to 75,000 rpm. Homogenizers are a standard piece of equipment for any lab.
Multi-Sample Homogenizers are extremely convenient for laboratory researchers who are processing a large number of similar samples. These systems allow for many lab samples to be homogenized simultaneously reducing labor intensive single sample processing.
Ultrasonic Homogenizers are recommended for homogenization and lysis of laboratory samples that do not require traditional grinding or rotor-stator cutting techniques for processing. Small and large ultrasonic probes are available to allow for a variety of sample volumes to be processed. Ultrasonic probes are made of chemical resistant solid titanium. A solid probe allows for less chance of sample loss and cross-contamination between samples.
