High-throughput homogenization, NO cross-contamination & keeps samples cool& - Introducing: the Bullet Blender! (May/08/2009 )

When you're doing tissue or cell homogenization, you should never have to worry about cross-contamination, non-sterile baths, homogenizing samples one at a time, or heat buildup within the samplesThe Bullet Blender is a high-throughput, bench-scale homogenizer that uses striking technology to homogenize your samples while they stay cool and sterile.

The Bullet Blender can homogenize up to 24 samples at once, in standard microfuge tubes, and can fully homogenize most tissue in just three minutes! We also have a larger model that works with standard 50mL tubes for larger samples, and BLUE models with air-cooling which are perfect for highly temperature-sensitive experiments. Because all models are microprocessor-controlled, you get consistent results every time!

Hope to hear from you!

We tried this equipment in our Lab when we were looking for tissue homogenizers for DNA extraction. We finally chose Precellys24, which was more convenient and gave better results. Moreover it has a cooling option to keep temperature at approx. 4C during homogenization, which was required in some of our protocols.

That's a shame. You could have simply placed a Bullet Blender in a 4*C room and saved yourself over $8000.

Can you explain how it was more convenient?

Thanks,

Well Im working for a biotechnology start-up and our project is based on a thermo-sensible protein. Due to the high sensibility of our material we really need to cool down the protein during the mechanical process and not only the installation. That is the reason why the extraction results were much better with Precellys. Anyway, we dont own any 4C room, so buying one would have been much more expensive!

That makes sense, then. Thanks for the feedback! We genuinely appreciate it.

Best of luck in your research!
