Bead Mill Homogenizer

Bead Ruptor 12


Bead Ruptor 12 Homogenizer

The Bead Ruptor 12 is the most powerful and economical bead mill homogenizer available today. It is an ideal solution for a variety of applications that require grinding, lysing, and homogenization of biological samples prior to molecular extraction.

Using disposable sample tubes pre-filled with a variety of lysing beads, the Bead Ruptor 12 vigorously and uniformly shakes up to 16 tubes at a time providing an efficient, consistent homogenization and high-yield. Unlike most other bead mill homogenizers, the Bead Ruptor 12 does not require a cool down period between runs. This means more samples can be processed in a smaller amount of time.

Benefits of the Bead Ruptor 12 Homogenizer include:

  • Simultaneously homogenize up to 12 x 0.5 or 2 mL tubes and 4 x 7 mL tubes
  • Convenient front-loading tube holder position for ease of use and optimal bead/sample interactions
  • Processing range is ideal for soft tissue samples
  • No cool-down required between runs = non-stop processing
  • Disposable tubes ensure no threat of cross-contamination
  • No sample degradation due to quick processing
  • Features and integrated lid lock

Compelling performance at a compelling price

The Bead Ruptor 12 is designed with a unique  tube carriage motion to ensure that the intra-tube bead movement reduces swirling and results in the  a high bead impact force. The Bead Ruptor 12 is more powerful than  competitor bead mills that are twice the cost making it an excellent solution for any lab working with tissues or cellular material.

Processing G-Force Range Comparison Bead impact forces generated by commercially available bead mills.  Bead impact forces are calculated as a function of tube acceleration, tube displacement and the motor force applied to the tube. The Bead Ruptor 12 and Bead Ruptor Elite have the broadest force range and produce the highest impact forces of any bead mill on the market. This results in an increased processing efficiency on the Bead Ruptor platforms


Unique snap in tube carriage design

The Bead Ruptor 12 eliminates the tedious task of screwing down finger plates  which are present other bead mills. The patent pending snap in tube carriage allows tubes to be “snapped in” and “snapped out” easily thus decreasing  workload and increasing safety. The Bead Ruptor 12 is an ideal bead mill for core laboratories or as a shared resource with its short learning curve and ease of use.
