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.

A full range of Kryotech® accessories are available to preserve temperature sensitive samples such as proteins and RNA.  The Geno/Grinder is also recognized as an excellent automatic axial extractor.  It is the ideal tool for the QuEChERS method used for extracting pesticide residues and other organic compounds. 

The Geno/Grinder enables increased throughput, improved extraction efficiency and reproducibility over traditional sample preparation methods. A full range of pre-loaded sample vials for different sample types is also available for fast and simple set up.

Applications include: Tissue Homogenization, DNA/RNA Research and extraction, Cell Lysis, Pesticide Residue Extraction, Protein Extraction, Biofuel research and QuEChERS.

Typical samples include: Animal tissue, Plant Tissue, Cell cultures, Fruit, Cannabis, Seeds, Yeast and Bacteria. 


The Geno/Grinder® - Plant & Tissue Homogenizer

The Geno/Grinder is specifically designed for vigorous up-and-down shaking of deep well titer plates or sample tubes up to 50mL. It provides an efficient mechanism for plant and animal tissue homogenization or cell lysis for the extraction of DNA, RNA, enzymes, proteins and pesticides. Cryogenic accessories allow the user to homogenize temperature sensitive or tough samples.
