For medium- to high-throughput sample disruption for molecular analysis
Convenient and secure disruption process
Adapter sets optimized for high-throughput disruption
Wide range of accessories available
Reproducible results with difficult-to-lyse tissues
Front-end solution for QIAGEN automation
The TissueLyser II simultaneously disrupts multiple biological samples through high-speed shaking in plastic tubes with stainless steel, tungsten carbide, or glass beads. Using the appropriate adapter set, up to 48 or 192 samples can be processed at the same time. Alternatively, a grinding jar set can be used to process large samples. A range of beads, bead dispensers, and collection microtubes and caps are also available. All accessories for the TissueLyser II, including adapter sets, are also compatible with the TissueLyser (no longer available).
The TissueLyser II is well-suited for high-throughput disruption of human, animal, and plant tissues, bacteria, and yeast. Highly reproducible purification of high-quality DNA, RNA, miRNA, and protein is achieved, even with difficult-to-lyse tissues (see figures "Efficient disruption of animal tissues", "Reproducible RNA purification from plant tissues", "Reproducible DNA purification from animal tissue", "Purification of intact protein from animal tissue", "Reproducible RNA purification from Gram-positive bacteria", and "Reliable detection of miRNAs").
