Lysing Matrix Y is composed of 0.5 mm diameter Yttria-Stabilized Zirconium Oxide beads. The beads have a high density and an extremely high hardness making this matrix ideal for cracking of very tough cell walls while it's smooth surface minimizes shearing. Lysing Matrix Y is used primarily for lysis of gram (+/-) bacteria, fungal tissue and spores, yeasts, molds, filamentous algaes and biofilms.
