• FastPrep® Instruments
  • FastPrep® Adapters
  • FastPrep® Lysing Matrix

A critical step during your Plant Research study is the disruption phase as samples need to be homogenized in the most effective way for your downstream applications.
  • Thorough disruption in seconds of plant cell membranes and refractive cellulose cell walls
  • Ready-to-use DNA and RNA for PCR, real-time PCR and RT-PCR as well as RFLP, RAPD and AFLP analysis
  • Total removal of polysaccharides, polyphenols and other metabolites that can inhibit downstream applications
  • Excellent reproducibility for an optimum assay-to-assay consistency FastPrep® system has been developed in 3 sizes for your optimal solution in plant tissue grinding.
FastPrep-24™5G
Often Imitated. Never duplicated.

FastPrep-96™
High throughput grinding.

SuperFastPrep-2™
Portable field testing.

They say it works. We are here to prove it.
FastPrepĀ® has been used by thousands of researchers including plant research field. Discover under the FastPrep® Library how FastPrep® System helped plant scientits achieve best results in their studies.
Leaves
Prepare suspensions of nuclei for flow cytometry from fresh leaves, herbarium leaves, petals and pollen.
Roots
Analysis of leaf and root transcriptomes of soil-grown avena barbata plants. RNA extraction from cassava root.
Seeds
Metabolite profiling and quantitative genetics of natural variation for flavonoids in Arabidopsis.

FastPrep® Adapters Need more flexibility? Jump easily from one adapter to another!


We know that your sample may require specific lysis conditions or that your workload may vary and your sample type may be different.
For that reason, we developed 11 interchangeable adapters to be used with FastPrep® instrument.

FastPrep® Lysing Matrix Experience unmatched versatility for any plant sample


To get the best out of the usage of FastPrep® instruments for your plant disruption step, we identified 4 different Lysing Matrix tubes that will deliver the best results.
