Bead beating is quickly becoming the preferred process used to break up (lyse) samples in order to release the DNA, RNA and proteins contained within cells. Samples are placed in tubes with the appropriate grinding beads and subjected to high energy mixing. The beads impact the sample, eventually breaking it down on the cellular level releasing subcellular contents.
For best results, use Pre-Filled Tube Kits with BeadBug Microtube Homogenizer Item #D1030 and Bead Blaster 24 Microtube Homogenizer Item #D2400
Recommended for small samples such as yeast, cell culture or small pieces of tissue
