FastPrep System
FastPrep Instruments and Consumables Accelerate
Sample Preparation in Current Research

From Aspergillus to Zooplankton, the FastPrep® Systems 
of sample preparation instruments and kits are on the cutting
edge of research. High yields from the most resistant samples 
are provided through the combination of power, specialized 
motion, and optimized lysing matrix particles. All of this gives the most
usable nucleic acids, active proteins, and other small molecule extractions
from even tough samples, rapid and reproducible-every time.
