The BeadBug™ 6 joins the large capacity BeadBlaster™ 24 and personal sized
BeadBug™ 3 as the newest member of the Benchmark homogenizer line.
Like the other members of the Benchmark Microtube Homogenizer family, the
BeadBug 6 utilizes a three dimensional shaking motion to disrupt samples. This
motion, when combined with beads of the appropriate size and material, causes
high velocity impacts with the sample and is an extremely fast and efficient
method for releasing cellular contents, including nucleic acids and proteins.
Many different sample types, from cells in culture to organ tissues and bone
can be homogenized in the BeadBug 6, most within 45 seconds. Programming
the unit is very simple – just set the speed, time, number of cycles and pause
between cycles, then press start. For convenience, the last programmed
parameters remain in memory for repeated runs.
