Sample Preparation

Pourers Stackers

DISTRIWELL system allows for autonomously pouring 320 dishes in less than 30 minutes. Media sterility is maintained from the media preparatory, until ready to be poured into a plate, through a filling zone protected by UV rays.

 

Media Preparators

Our two models of culture Media Preparators the Mediawel 10 (1-10L) and the Mediawel 30 (2.5 – 30L) allow you to prepare time and time again, with consistency and traceability, culture media from 1L up to 30L. It is possible to prepare various types of culture media such as blood agar and media with supplements while guaranteeing optimal temperature homogeneity and fertility of the media. The Mediawel 10 and Mediawel 30 culture media preparators are easy to use, program, clean and provide an ergonomic design for the operator. The stirrer is made of stainless steel and is set in place by means of a magnetic mechanism, that makes it very easy for you to remove and put back. This is especially important for the cleaning of the inner chamber where the media is being prepared

 

Geno/Grinder® Range

2010 Geno/Grinder® - Automated Tissue Homogenizer and Cell Lyser

The Geno/Grinder® is an automated high-throughput plant & animal tissue homogenizer and cell lyser. It is equipped with an adjustable clamp that accommodates a full range of sample vials from 2mL to 50mL centrifuge tubes or up to six deep-well titer plates. It is specifically designed for rapid cell disruption, cell lysis and tissue homogenization through bead beating. This enables fast and efficient extraction of nucleic acids, proteins and other molecules. The new model Geno/Grinder incorporates a password protected, touch screen control panel, enabling the user to program run time, rate, cycles and pause time.

 

      • Applications include: Tissue Homogenization, DNA/RNA Research and extraction, Cell Lysis, Pesticide Residue Extraction, Protein & Metabolite Extraction, Biofuel research and QuEChERS.
      • Typical samples include: Animal tissue, Plant Tissue, Cell cultures, Fruit, Cannabis, Seeds, Yeast and Bacteria.

 

1600 MiniG® - Automated Tissue Homogenizer and Cell Lyser

The 1600 MiniG® is the ideal solution for labs that want a compact yet powerful tissue homogenizer and cell lyser. It is equipped with an adjustable clamp that accommodates a full range of sample vials from 2mL to 50mL centrifuge tubes or up to two deep-well titer plates. It is specifically designed for rapid cell disruption, cell lysis and tissue homogenization through bead beating, enabling fast and efficient extraction of nucleic acids, proteins and other molecules of interest.

 

      • Applications include: Tissue Homogenization, DNA/RNA Research and extraction, Cell Lysis, Protein Extraction, Biofuel research, Pesticide Residue extraction using QuEChERS or the SweEt method.
      • Typical samples include: Animal tissue, Plant Tissue, Cell cultures, Fruit, Cannabis, Seeds, Yeast and Bacteria

 

2030 Geno/Grinder® - Automated Tissue Homogenizer and Cell Lyser

The 2030 Geno/Grinder® is an automated plant and animal tissue homogenizer and cell lyser that integrates with automated, robotic systems. It has the same vigorous, up-and-down grinding motion as the 2010 Geno/Grinder. The average processing time for each cycle is two minutes or less. It has a versatile clamp accommodates titer plates, vials and all standard SPE plates.

 

      • Applications include: This automated homogenizer is ideal for high-throughput processing of samples for isolation of nucleic acids (RNA/DNA), enzymes, yeast, proteins, and bacteria. It allows users to run a large number of preloaded stacked titer plates unattended. Samples can be pulverized with or without buffer using a variety of grinding media.
      • Typical samples include: Animal tissue, plant tissue, cell cultures, yeast, fruit, and bacteria.

 

Cryogenic Grinders

Freezer/Mill®

Some samples are impossible to grind at ambient temperatures. the Freezer/Mill® is a programmable cryogenic grinder specifically designed for milling and grinding of tough or temperature sensitive samples. Samples are placed in sealed cryogenic grinding vials then immersed in liquid nitrogen (LN). The samples are cooled to cryogenic temperatures then ground by a magnetically shuttling impactor.

Since the vials are sealed, the cryogenic grinder maintains the integrity of its contents. Volatile compounds are retained, hazardous or critical samples are easily controlled, cleanup is simplified and cross-sample contamination is eliminate.

 

      • Typical samples include: Animal tissue, plastic and polymers, yeast cultures, pharmaceuticals, tough or sticky food products, electronic components, textiles, hair, teeth, bones, plant tissue, cannabis and packaging
