FastPrep® Lysis Beads & Matrix Tubes for Sample Disruption
Lysing Beads - Matrix I
Tubes contain 2 mm yellow zirconia and 4 mm black ceramic beads. ZrO2 has high density, tensile strength and hardness, and breaks hard samples with a dense exterior matrix. Ceramic gives high inertia to break chitin/protein in exoskeleton of arthropods/ crustaceans. Use to isolate RNA/Proteins from plant/animal, dense soils/clays, insects, and dry grinding fungal spores/rusts.

Lysing Beads - Matrix I Tube Sizes
Lysing Matrix I, 2 mL Tube

Each impact-resistant 2 mL tube contains 2 mm yellow zirconia beads and a 4 mm black ceramic sphere. Matrix I tubes have clear caps. Zirconium oxide has very high density and high tensile strength and hardness, and is effective at breaking very tough and hard samples, including organisms within a tough or dense exterior matrix. This is useful in applications such as isolation of intact organelles, and super-molecular structures where lysis conditions necessitate high impaction but low shearing. The 4 m...
