Beadbug™3 Microtube Homogenizer (D1030)

Simultaneous homogenization of up to 3 samples takes place (often within 45 seconds) inside the disposable 2ml screw cap microtubes.

Highlights

  • Extremely powerful mixing for lysis, grinding or homogenization
  • Faster and more effective than tissue grinders
  • Homogenize 1, 2 or 3 tubes simultaneously
  • Extremely compact, less than 7″ wide
  • Eliminates the cross contamination associated with handheld homogenizers
  • Full range of beads in prefilled tubes and bulk available

Product Overview

Description

The BeadBug™ 3 is a high energy benchtop homogenizer that sets the performance standard for personal sized cell disruption and lysis instruments.

Simultaneous homogenization of up to 3 samples takes place (often within 45 seconds) inside the disposable 2ml screw cap microtubes. The optimized mixing motion causes rapid cell disruption through constant high velocity impact from the hardened micro-beads chosen specifically for your sample type.

Developed for samples too tough to be homogenized in a common lab vortexer, the BeadBug 3 provides a convenient and economical alternative to the traditional, high capacity homogenizers on the market today. With up to three tube capacity and a footprint of just 7 x 8″, the BeadBug 3 is the ideal homogenizing instrument for low to medium throughput laboratories.

Features

  • High energy benchtop design: Sets the performance standard for personal-sized cell disruption and lysis instruments.
  • Simultaneous homogenization: Capable of processing up to 3 samples concurrently, often within 45 seconds, using disposable 2ml screw cap microtubes.
  • Optimized mixing motion: Facilitates rapid cell disruption through constant high-velocity impact from specially chosen hardened micro-beads tailored to sample types.
  • Tough sample compatibility: Developed for samples too resilient for common lab vortexers, offering a convenient and cost-effective alternative to traditional high-capacity homogenizers.
  • Compact footprint: With dimensions of just 7 x 8 inches, the BeadBug™ 3 is ideal for low to medium throughput laboratories.
  • Powerful mixing capabilities: Suitable for lysis, grinding, or homogenization tasks, ensuring thorough and efficient sample processing.
  • Enhanced efficiency: Faster and more effective than tissue grinders, enabling streamlined laboratory workflows.
  • Versatile tube capacity: Can homogenize 1, 2, or 3 tubes simultaneously, providing flexibility in experimental setups.
  • Cross-contamination prevention: Eliminates the risk associated with handheld homogenizers, ensuring sample integrity.
  • Comprehensive bead options: Offers a full range of beads in both prefilled tubes and bulk formats, catering to diverse homogenization needs.
