SKU D1034-28

The BeadBlaster™ 24 completely lyses, grinds and homogenizes

a broad variety of biological samples. Even the most difficult and

resistant samples are fully homogenized, often in 35 seconds or


The stainless steel tube carrier subjects up to 24 samples to an

optimized, high speed, 3D motion, producing high energy impacts

between the samples and micro-beads to release cellular contents.

After homogenization, samples can be centrifuged and the

supernatant collected for further processing.

Operating parameters for the BeadBlaster 24 are set and displayed

digitally. To protect fragile, heat sensitive samples, the unit can be

programmed to operate in shortened consecutive cycles with a rest

period in between. Up to 50 such programs can be stored in memory

and recalled for future use. A transparent lid allows for visualization

of samples, and features a mechanical lid lock that prevents opening

owhen the BeadBlaster is in operation. A brushless motor reduces

motor noise and provides maintenance free operation.

Benchmark offers an assortment of prefilled tube kits for a variety

of sample types. The popular Triple-Pure™ kits include acid washed,

heat treated, zirconium beads. The beads are tested to be free of

nucleases, making them ideal for molecular biology applications.

A convenient starter kit (D1032-SK) is available to accommodate

a broad range of sample types and optimize applications.
