BeadBug 6 Position Homogenizer
  • Fast, efficient bead homogenization
  • Process up to 6 samples simultaneously
  • For all sample types, from soft tissue to bone
  • Accepts 2.0ml or 5.0ml tubes
  • Full range of bead materials and sizes are available

The BeadBug™ 6 joins the large capacity BeadBlaster™ 24 and personal sized BeadBug™ 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 bonecan 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.
Sealed tubes prevent cross contamination in the BeadBug 6. Samples are simply loaded into the tubes along with the beads and placed in the unit for processing. After homogenization, tubes are spun briefly in a centrifuge, and the lysate removed with a pipette.
Designed to fit the needs of medium throughput laboratories, the BeadBug 6 can simultaneously process up to six samples in 2.0ml tubes. With optional adapters,the unit will also accept two 5.0ml tubes. A full range of bead materials and sizes are available in both prefilled tubes and in bulk to meet all your sample processing needs.
