High-energy cell disrupter designed to process one sample at a time

The Mini-Beadbeater-Plus is a high-energy cell disrupter designed to process one sample at a time. Featuring four shaking speeds and a digital timer, it is conveniently used for processing up to 20 vial samples per day. Consider the MBB-16, MBB-24 and MBB-96 for larger through-put. Protocols developed using different models of the MBB are transferable within the MBB series with little, if any, modification.

The Mini-Beadbeater-Plus violently agitates a sealed microcentrifuge vial containing cells or tissue, extraction solution and tiny glass, zirconia or steel beads. Even resistant yeast or fibrous tissues are completely homogenized in about 3 minutes in 0.1 to 1.0 ml of homogenization medium. The non-foaming, non-aerosol method preserves enzymes, nucleic acids and organelles. Ideal for PAGE, polymerase applications and diagnosis using antibody or oligonucleotide probes. Recover high yields of intact DNA or RNA by simultaneous disruption and extraction in phenol, Guanidinium-SCN solutions or commercial kit reagents. Sterile techniques are easily accommodated to recover intracellular virus and bacteria from plant and animal cells. Because the beads and vials are disposable, there is Absolutely Zero cross-contamination between samples – essential for PCR techniques.

The Mini-Beadbeater-Plus can also be used for dry grinding. Here, steel beads are added to hard samples such as hair, bone, teeth, seeds and minerals and are completely powdered in 10-60 seconds. Softer materials such as biological tissue, rubber or plastics can be powdered by first pre-freezing the sample to liq.N2 temperatures (Cryo-grinding).
