Multisample Beadbeater

BioSpec Products

The MiniBeadbeater-24 cell disrupter disrupts and homogenizes all cell types, from bacteria and spores to animal and plant tissues. Cell lysis takes place in sealed 2 mL microvials containing glass or ceramic beads. Nucleic acids and proteins are isolated in 1–2 minutes of beadbeating. The ...

Multisample Cell Disrupter

BioSpec Products

The MiniBeadbeater-16 disrupts spores, microorganisms, plant and animal tissues, or soil samples. This machine provides the same high-energy shaking as its predecessors, the MiniBeadbeater-1 and -96. Up to 16 disposable microvials of 1.5- or 2-mL in a removable cassette are loaded with small disposa...

Multisample Cell Disrupter

BioSpec Products

The new SoniBeast™ cell disrupter can quickly disrupt all types of cellular samples, from fungi, bacteria, and spores to animal and plant tissues. Using a new technology, the SoniBeast is able to process small samples of sealed 0.5 mL PCR tubes. The tubes, filled with sample, e...

Multisample Cell Disrupter

BioSpec Products

The new SoniBeast™ cell disrupter homogenizes both microorganisms and plant and animal tissue using the smashing action of colliding ceramic beads. It departs from contemporary beadbeater machines by oscillating tubes and microvials at a rate of 20,000 oscillations/min&mdas...

Reinforced Microvials

BioSpec Products

For use in high-energy beadbeater-type machines, these microvials help reduce to powder hard biological samples (e.g., seeds, hair, and frozen plant and animal tissue) and nonbiological materials (e.g., minerals, soil, tablets, and solid chemicals). XXTuff vials can withstand dry grinding with st...

Small-Sample Cell Disrupter

BioSpec Products

Designed for analytical screening of milligram quantities of tissue and microorganisms, the compact Micro-MiniBeadBeater disrupts spores, bacteria, yeast, plant, and animal tissue. A microvial is loaded with a large number of tiny ceramic beads and the contents are violently shaken for 1–3 ...

Snap-Freeze Tissue Clamp

BioSpec Products

The BioSqueezer is used to freeze animal and human tissue samples. Tissue is compressed into a thin disc under a metal clamp head that is pre-cooled in liquid nitrogen or dry ice. Freezing occurs in less than a second, thus giving a snapshot of metabolic events in the cells. The hard frozen disc ...

Stainless Steel Microvial

BioSpec Products

The Type 305 stainless steel microvial was designed for toughness and heat transfer. It has a capacity of 1.5 mL and is sealed with a polyolefin flange-cap. Applications include PCR methods, cryo-vial storage, and BeadBeater cell disrupter applications. Unlike polypropylene vials, it cannot not be b...
