The Beadbeater comes complete with a 350 ml polycarbonate chamber, rotor assembly and motor base.
The Beadbeater disrupts microorganisms, single-cell preparations and pulverized plant and animal tissue with better than 95 percent efficiency. Up to 80 grams ( net weight ) of cells can be processed in a typical three minute run. Relying on a unique crushing or cracking action rather than high shear forces with a French Press or sonicator, a Teflon impeller rotating at high speed forces thousands of minute glass beads to violently collide in a special clover-leaf shaped vessel. Cells are disrupted quickly, efficiently and safely in the sealed system. The apparatus is easy to clean, has a small footprint, requires no auxiliary supplies or equipment and is essentially maintenance free. Beads settle out in seconds and are reusable.
