The FastPrep®-24 5G instrument is a high-speed benchtop homogeniser offering the ultimate in speed and performance for the lysis of biological samples. It uses a unique, optimised motion to disrupt cells through the multi directional, simultaneous beating of specialised Lysing Matrix beads on the sample material. Developed for difficult and resistant samples, the FastPrep®-24 5G instrument lyses thoroughly and quickly any tissues and cells and allows easy and reproducible isolation of stable RNA, active proteins and full-length genomic DNA.
- Simultaneous homogenisation of up to 24 samples takes place in 40 s or less
- Unique, optimised motion to disrupt cells
- Developed for difficult and resistant samples
Samples and buffers are added to a 2,0 ml Lysing Matrix tube containing specialised Lysing Matrix beads. The ergonomic design of the instrument ensures easy loading of the sample tubes that remain securely sealed during the processing. The homogenisation speed and duration times are manually programmed using a touch screen visual display. After setting the speed and time with the touch of a button, just push 'run', and in less than a minute the samples are completely lysed. The touch screen software based interface also includes a wide range of recommended programs designed to minimise optimisation times.
The FastPrep®-24 5G utilises interchangeable adapters, which allow versatility in sample number, size and temperature conditions. All adapters are stable and stand on the benchtop, they are commonly used as tube racks for sample storage at –20 or –80 °C. Frozen Lysing Matrix tubes loaded in the adapters are ready to be processed immediately with minimal hands-on manipulation. A range of specialised Lysing Matrix tubes containing beads of different materials, sizes and shapes have been tailored to guarantee thorough homogenisation of any sample. High performance purification kits, when used in conjunction with the FastPrep®-24 5G, provide simple, ready-to-use methods for the release and subsequent purification of DNA, RNA and proteins.
Delivery information: Supplied with power cord, standard QuickPrep™ adapter (24×2 ml capacity) and user manual. Additional adapters are available separately.
