HOMOGENIZERS

Mechanical homogenization procedures generate lysates with characteristics different than those produced by chemical lysis. A variety of devices are used to homogenize samples. In all cases, the tube, vial or plate is shaken so that grinding media can impact and disrupt the sample. Regardless of the mechanical approach, whether it is to beat, grind, shear, or explode cells, they are tools that can be applied in many different ways to sample preparation. Read More

DNA EXTRACTION RESEARCH KITS

Synergy™ incorporates the bead beating step of homogenization into the purification scheme using a proprietary chemistry that binds contaminants to the Synergy™ grinding matrix. Synergy™ DNA extraction platform features proprietary technology to isolate high quality DNA in a timely and cost-efficient manner without the use of hazardous chloroform. Read More

GRINDING BALLS & SATELLITES

Larger and more resilient samples can be homogenized through the use of grinding balls. In contrast to grinding beads, which are a pool of beads within a given size range, grinding balls are spherical and precision ground to a specific diameter. They are made of stainless steel, tungsten carbide, or zirconium oxide. Read More

PRESERVATION & STORAGE

Freeze drying (lyophilization) is an established method for long-term storage, of biomolecules. The general process is used to preserve bacteria, fungi, yeasts, proteins, nucleic acids, and any other molecules which may degrade in the presence of water. Read More

Freezing, either cryogenically (below -130°C) in liquid nitrogen or at higher temperatures in standard laboratory freezers, is the most popular form of preservation. Many occasions require the handling of cryogenically preserved cells and biological samples. Read More
