The easiest and coolest way to lyse cells and homogenize tissue.


  • Consistent & High Yields
  • No Cross Contamination
  • Samples Stay Cool
  • Easiest to Use
  • Risk Free

 

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

Bullet Blender® Models for Special Applications

The BULLET BLENDER® FIELD MODEL Enhancement

A fully portable, lightweight unit that will allow you to homogenize samples as you collect them. The Field Model contains an internal rechargeable battery, capable of 25 complete 5-minute runs of 6 tubes each between charging. Only available for domestic sales. Equipped with a padded handle for ease of carrying. This factory upgrade is available on models that use microcentrifuge tubes. This is a factory installed upgrade. . . . 

more info

The BIOBOX™ BULLET BLENDER®

With this factory enhancement, the Bullet Blender is built into a locking containment unit. The housing and containment unit are clear so leaks or spills are readily identifiable. The pressure in the secondary container is decreased so that a break in the seal would lead to leakage inward, not outward. The controls for this integrated system are mounted on the outside of the containment unit. Available for microcentrifuge screw cap tube Bullet Blender models: BBX24W and BBX24BW. This is a factory installed enhancement and requires purchase of the Bullet Blender at the time of purchase of the BioBox.

 

Consistent and High Yield Results

The BULLET BLENDER prepares up to 24 samples in just minutes. All of the samples are automatically homogenized in the same manner, with high yields, so there is very little variation from sample to sample.

No Cross-Contamination or Sample Loss

There are no probes or blades to cause cross contamination or sample loss, which also means there are no parts to clean between runs. The sample tubes are kept closed and self-contained during homogenization.

Samples Stay COOL

No cool down required. The instrument uses very little power due to the unique, patented design, so there is very little heat build up in the instrument or inside the sample tubes. It uses a small DC motor to agitate the individual tubes. Also, because the motor does not need to agitate any heavy platforms or plates, it is small and will last for years.

Easiest To Use

Simply place your sample, beads and buffer in standard tubes, and load the tubes into the BULLET BLENDER. Tune the extent of disruption by adjusting the run time and speed. Afterwards, place the sample tubes in a centrifuge to separate the lysate. No special holders are needed. There are no clamp plates nor locking rings to fiddle with.

Risk Free Purchase

BULLET BLENDER units come with a 30 day money back guarantee and a 2 year warranty. The simple, reliable design enables the BULLET BLENDER to sell for one half to one fifth the price of ultrasonic or other agitation based instruments, yet provides an easier, quicker, cooler technique.

 

Air Cooling™ in The Bullet Blender®:

The Air Cooling™ system draws air into the Bullet Blender, keeping your samples at ambient temperature. This feature is particularly effective if your samples are sensitive to heat and you are using your Bullet Blender in a refrigerator or a cold room. The Air Cooling™ is also useful for preventing the inside of your Bullet Blender unit from heating up if you are running several consecutive homogenization cycles. Air Cooling™ is an option on the microtube models and standard on the 5 mL and the 50 mL tube models.
