1600 MiniG Automated Tissue Homogenizer and Cell Lyser from SPEX

The 1600 MiniG® is the ideal solution for labs that want a compact yet powerful tissue homogenizer and cell lyser. This mechanical disruptor is designed to effectively disrupt cellular materials by oscillating one or two deep-well titer plates vertically. Clamp also holds up to 6 x50 mL vials or 48 x 2 mL vials or 24 x 5 mL vials.

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.

MiniG Introduction

The MiniG® is a small tissue homogenizer designed to effectively disrupt cellular materials by shaking deep-well titer plates or sample vials vertically.

Features

  • Automated mechanical disruption through bead beating, ideal for high-throughput cell lysis applications including DNA/ RNA extraction, protein extraction and pesticide residue analysis.
  • Window in lid allows you to see the grinding process.
  • Clamp typically holds up to two titer plates or 48 x 2 mL vials or 48 x 5 mL vials when stacked.
  • Clamp also accommodates taller vials such as 12 x 15 mL or 6 x 50 mL falcon tubes.
  • Lid has a safety interlock switch that stops the motor if the lid is opened during the grinding process.
  • Optional Kryo-Tech® Accessories enable cryogenic grinding and preserve temperature sensitive samples for RNA and protein extractions.
  • LCD display screen shows run times in minute : second format.
  • Rate & timer controls allow you to adjust speed and set time.
  • Start and stop buttons allow you to start and stop the grinding process.
