The 2025 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.
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.
