The BeadBlaster™ 96 is an extremely versatile bead mill homogenizer that has applications in a variety of areas, including biological research, environmental testing, and industrial settings. Adapters are available for microplates, microtubes, and 50ml tubes. Stainless steel grinding jars also available. Wet homogenization, dry grinding and cryogrinding can all be performed with the BeadBlaster™ 96. The arced motion of the sample holders and powerful motor allow most samples to be processed in 1 minute or less. All parameters are digitally controlled through the large touch screen and 9 programs can be stored in memory. The safety cover lifts up for easy access to the sample holders and automatically locks during operation. The wrap-around design of the clear acrylic lid allows for visualization during homogenization.
