Sample Prep

 A space-saving and low cost combination of centrifuge and vortex in new design. Stopping long ways between centrifugation and vortexing.

Tubes can be vortexed directly through the opening in the lid.

  • centrifugation speed 2.400 rpm at 700 x G
  • vortex speed 2.400 rpm
  • autostopp, when lid is open
  • continuous and impulse operation
  • weight: 2,1 kg, dimensions are 190 x 235 x 125 mm


The centrifuge - vortex mixer is supplied with two rotor-discs, one for 12 x 0,5 ml and 12 x 0,2 ml and one for 12 x 1,5 ml tubes.

sensoquest._labvisionlogo-jThermocycler (labcycler) 

The labcycler has a processor controlled block with separately controlled peltier elements for extraordinary temperature homogeneity at high heating and cooling rates. State-of-the-art peltier elements have demonstrated more than 600000 cycles so far without any failures. This gives more than 15 years of lifetime even under the most demanding conditions, like DNA-sequencing on a daily basis.
Two labcycler can be connected with a RS232 null modem cable. This allows simple copy of programs or the directory from one device to another.
The TFT touch screen in combination with the self-explanatory software is easy to use. labcycler Basic (order no. 011-103) and Gradient (order no. 011-101) are compatible with all blocks.

 

The Bullet Blender™ BLUE 5

The Bullet Blender™ "BLUE 5" contains all the homogenizing power of the original Bullet Blender with over 3 times the capacity! Homogenize up to one gram of tough tissue, soft tissue, cell culture, or small organisms in 5ml screw-cap tubes - usually in under 5 minutes! Holds up to 12 tubes.

The Bullet Blender™, is a vortexer (at a low setting), a cell disruptor and a tissue homogenizer (at a high setting) all in one unit.  No parts contact the samples, eliminating any possibility of cross contamination.

 

Microprocessor-controlled UV irradiation system.

The emission of the UV light is constantly monitored by a UV sensor which is controlled by a microprocessor. The irradiation stops automatically when the energy received matches the energy programmed. The irradiation cycler are perfectly reproducible and are independent from intensity fluctuations of the UV source. Just programme the energy and Bio-Link delivers it! Bio-Link combines the latest technology with a very high quality of the components. UV exposure chamber in stainless steel, protective quartz disk on the UV sensor cell, highly resistant tactile membrane keypad. The readout display and the large number of presets, either in energy unit (Joules/cm²) or in time unit (seconds), makes the Bio-Link a very simple instrument to use while very powerful. The UV light intensity is captured in a well of light above the irradiation chamber, so that the UV cell measure is collected from all the UV tubes and not just one. This also protect the UV cell from any dirt which can enter the chamber.

Bullet Blender® Beads

Beads are the components that strike and grind your samples resulting in tissue homogenization and cell lysis. We provide a variety of beads suitable for a wide array of samples. The general rule of thumb is to choose larger, denser beads for tougher samples. We also provide RNase free beads for RNA extractions and Sample Bead Packs for different types of samples

The BULLET BLENDER™ enables you to homogenize, disrupt, or lyse 24 tissue or cell culture samples at a time. Load the samples into polypropylene microcentrifuge tubes, then place them in the BULLET BLENDER™.The "bullets" in the instrument vigorously strike all the sample tubes while in operation. The Bullet Blender™ is now available with Air Cooling™ to preserve your sample quality.
