Spex SamplePrep 2010 Geno/Grinder Tissue Homogenizer & Cell Lyser

PN: 2010 (same a Cole Parmer HG-600)

Condition: Used, tested in good working condition.

Description(from mfgr website):

  • Model prepares plant material such as seeds, stems, roots, leaves, fruits, vegetables and animal tissue.
  • Sample preparation is completed in about two minutes with the addition of 1 to 2 grinding balls to the sample along with a buffer solution.
  • Handles two standard deep-well titer plates or multiple sample tubes from 0.6 to 50 mL.
  • LCD screen displays both the full timer setting along with the minutes and seconds remaining in the grinding cycle.
  • Simple controls allow the operator to set the run time and precise vertical grinding speed between 500 and 1750 strokes per minute.
  • Safety interlocks and pneumatic cylinder stabilize the lid for safe operation.
  • Clamping mechanism latches have secondary locking tabs for additional safety.
  • Automated disruption of plant and animal tissue provides reproducibility and increased yields.
  • Elimination of cross-contamination.
  • Replaced by model 2010 Geno/Grinder.
  • Available outside the US while supplies last.
  • Applications: Isolation of nucleic acids (DNA/RNA), proteins, enzymes, bacteria and yeast; Extraction of pesticide residues using QuEChERS method

The Geno/Grinder® (part # 2010) is a high-throughput plant & animal tissue homogenizer and cell lyser.  It is equipped with an adjustable clamp that accommodates a full range of sample vials from 2mL to 50mL centrifuge tubes or up to six deep-well titer plates.  It is specifically designed for rapid cell disruption, cell lysis and tissue homogenization through bead beating.  This enables fast and efficient extraction of nucleic acids, proteins and other molecules.  The new model Geno/Grinder incorporates a password protected, touch screen control panel, enabling the user to program run time, rate, cycles and pause time.

A full range of Kryotech® accessories are available to preserve temperature sensitive samples such as proteins and RNA.  The Geno/Grinder is also recognized as an excellent automatic axial extractor.  It is the ideal tool for the QuEChERS method used for extracting pesticide residues and other organic compounds. 

The Geno/Grinder enables increased throughput, improved extraction efficiency and reproducibility over traditional sample preparation methods. A full range of pre-loaded sample vials for different sample types is also available for fast and simple set up.

Applications include: Tissue Homogenization, DNA/RNA Research and extraction, Cell Lysis, Pesticide Residue Extraction, Protein & Metabolite Extraction, Biofuel research and QuEChERS.

Typical samples include: Animal tissue, Plant Tissue, Cell cultures, Fruit, Cannabis, Seeds, Yeast and Bacteria.
