Multiple Homogenizer

Multiple Homogenizer

Summary

The precision Multiple Homogenizer (originally designed for insect samples) allows simultaneous preparation of 96 tissues samples, reducing homogenisation time by a factor of 10-fold. Up to 3000 samples for immuno-assay analysis may be prepared by one person daily. (R.H. French-Constant / A.L. Devonshire)

Product Details

The Multiple Homogenizer (originally designed for insect samples) allows simultaneous preparation of 96 tissue samples, reducing homogenization time by a factor of 10-fold. Up to 3000 samples for immuno-assay analysis may be prepared by one person daily.

Earlier labour-intensive and time-consuming methods have employed the use of standard micro-centrifuge tubes with close fitting glass rods. These methods proved to be the limitation in sample preparation when quantifying the activity of the enzyme responsible for the resistance to insecticides in aphids.

The illustration shows the precision component parts and the method of assembly. When buffer and samples have been loaded into the wells of the microplate the multi-pestle is inserted and rotated manually in an orbital motion.

The volume lost after this process regardless of homogenization volume was only 5µl when the pestles were extracted carefully. Thus 50% and 90% of sample was recovered reliably when homogenized in 10µl and 50µl respectively.

Other items of equipment for the analytical process include a special electrophoresis gel comb (corresponding to the pitches of the microplate), an 8-position multi-pipette, electrophoresis cabinet and power supply.
