The BioSpec Products Mini-BeadBeater 96 Cell Disrupter & Shaker is high-energy, high-throughput cell disrupter. It can process one 2 ml deep well micro plate (96 samples), two 1 ml deep well microplates (192 samples) or, using a included 45 capacity polypropylene microvial rack, 0.6, 1.5 or 2 ml microvials.
- Digital variable speed control presets between 1400 rpm to 2400 rpm and three programmable time presets.
- Complete cell disruption achieved within 1 to 3 minutes of beadbeating, producing very high yields of high quality DNA or RNA (using up to 400 mg of tissue).
- The unit can also be used for dry grinding. In this application, ceramic or steel beads are added to to vials containing hard, dry samples such as hair, bone, teeth, seeds and minerals.
Power: 115 VAC, 60 Hz, 20 A
Sample Capacity: Holds one 2 ml deep-well microplate or two 1 ml deep-well microplates. Also included is a microplate shaped vial holder which can hold 4 to 45 microvials (0.5, 1.5 & 2.0 ml) each containing up to 400 mg (wet weight) of biomaterial.
Vial displacement distance or Throw: 1.25 in. (3.2 cm).
Shaking Speed: Variable speed. 1400 rpm to 2400 rpm (40 oscillations/second).
3-D shaking pattern: Vial contents shake from the top to bottom of the vial or plate in a compressed figure-8 pattern. Vials and microplates are held in a near-horizontal orientation rather than the less efficient vertical position. This exclusive shaking pattern assures complete cell disruption in the shortest possible time. No reorientation of plates in mid-cycle is required.
Timer: 0 - 5 minutes with automatic reset.
Recycle delay time: No motor cool-down time is required during or between sample runs.
Dimensions: 16"W x 24"D x 18"H (40.6 x 61 x 45.7 cm)
Weight: 120 lbs. (54.4 kg)
