Lysing Matrix Z, 2 mL Tube contains 2.0 mm diameter Yttria-Stabilized Zirconium Oxide beads. Will not bind nucleic acids.
Lysing Matrix Z is used primarily for lysis of animal and plant tissue, tougher stems, roots and seeds, and whole insects. Matrix Z is an alternative to the very agressive Matrix A in applications such as RNA and Protein isolation from very tough tissue.
