Product Description

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 larger samples such as large pieces of tissue, plants, seeds, etc.
  • When samples are used for molecular biology applications, the high purity of the Triple-Pure beads is preferred
  • 2.0ml pre-filled microtubes are non-skirted and supplied with caps
  • Acid washed and processed to remove nucleases and proteases
  • Quality tested to ensure the elimination of DNase, RNase, protease, and nucleic acids
  • Bead Material: Triple-Pure Zirconium
  • Bead Diameter: 3.0mm
  • Hight density (5.5g/ml) beads - The added density of zirconium beads helps to yield better homogenized samples.
