FastPrep-24™ 5G bead beating grinder and lysis system
The FastPrep-24 5G is a versatile sample disruption instrument designed to quickly and efficiently homogenize, grind, or lyse biological samples. A completely self-contained system, the FastPrep-24 5G eliminates the risk of cross-contamination and time-consuming clean-up associated with manual lysis methods. Samples are added to individual lysing matrix tubes and placed into sample holder adapters within the instrument. The unique, optimized motion of the FastPrep-24 5G shakes the samples in a tridimensional motion resulting in the collision of the sample material with the lysing matrix particles.
Intuitive software makes programming the FastPrep-24 5G fast and simple. The programmable touchscreen display allows for the use of pre-determined or custom homogenization speeds and duration times with a finger touch. Increased power features result in faster processing times and complete lysis of even the toughest samples.
