BeatBox

Tissue homogenization simplified

Easy to use, fast tissue homogenization for efficient and reproducible sample preparation.

The PreOmics BeatBox is a revolutionary technology for efficient and reliable throughput for tissue homogenization and cell lysis. The BeatBox is a fast and easy-to-use instrument that completes sample homogenization in as little as 10 minutes without cross-contamination and minimal heat induction. The BeatBox gives users the flexibility to process up to 96 samples. The BeatBox has a surprisingly small footprint and quiet operation compared to traditional tissue processing instrumentation.

How it Works

 

The challenge:

The solution:

Reproducible and reliable cell lysis and tissue homogenization needs to produce a smooth and easy to pipette homogenate and minimize the possibility of cross-contamination. A specific consideration for proteomics is the release of the maximum number of proteins to make them accessible for the next steps of sample preparation. Additionally, lab space, the requirement for chiller units, and the noise made by some processes can also impact instrument choice. The BeatBox is a fast and easy to use instrument for up to 96 samples, which completes the homogenization in as little as 10 minutes without sample cross contamination and minimal heat induction. The BeatBox has a surprisingly small footprint and quiet operation in comparison to traditional tissue processing machines. With the BeatBox, cell lysis and tissue homogenization can be integrated into the PreOmics iST sample preparation workflows.

 

Streamline Workflows

 

How it Works

 

  • Step 1 Add tissue sample and iST Lyse buffer to 96 well plate
  • Step 2 Add plate to adaptor
  • Step 3 Put plate on adapter into BeatBox garage
  • Step 4 Select level of homogenization | Set the run time 1-10 mins | Press Start
  • Step 5 Collect proteins Continue with iST workflow
