Additional Information

The BeadBug™ is a high energy benchtop homogeniser that sets the performance standard for
personal sized cell disruption and lysis instruments. Simultaneous homogenisation of up to 3 samples
takes place (often within 45 seconds) inside the disposable 2ml. screw-cap microtubes. The optimised
mixing motion causes rapid cell disruption through constant high velocity impact from the hardened
micro-beads chosen specifically for your sample type.
Developed for samples too tough to be homogenised in a common laboratory vortexer, the BeadBug™
provides a convenient and economical alternative to the traditional, over-priced homogenisers on the
market today. With up to a 3 tube capacity and a footprint of just 17 x 21 cm., the BeadBug™ is the ideal
homogenising instrument for low to medium throughput laboratories.


> Extremely powerful mixing action, for lysis, grinding or homogenisation 
> Eliminates the cross-contamination associated with hand-held homogenisers
> Faster and more effective than tissue grinders
> Mix 1, 2 or 3 tubes simultaneously

Technical Data:

> Speed range: 2800 to 4000 rpm.
> Maximum capacity: 3 x 2ml. (non-skirted) tubes
> Timer: 3 seconds to 3 minutes
> Operating temperature range:  +4°C to +65°C
> Dimensions: 170W x 210D x 135H mm.
> Weight: 2.2 kg.
> Electrical: 230V, 50 Hz.
> Warranty: 2 years
