Multipurpose spin down mixer adapted to beads crushing

Bug Crasher GM-01

Code No.: 0061173-000

One machine for both vortex and spin down!! Addressed to crushing using beads or crusher.


Extract DNA/RNA from yeast and E.Coli by beads crushing
Extract DNA/RNA from plant cells by crusher crushing
Daily vortex and spin down


Extraction of DNA/RNA, protein by crushing microorganisms

When extracting DNA/RNA, protein from E. Coli, yeast or blue-green algae, mix glass beads with sample and agitate them. Process will be smooth because you can apply spin down directly after crushing. When extracting RNA, it is effective to freeze samples.
Can be utilized as simple centrifuge
Comparison result of normal centrifuge and ethanol precipitation
This product can execute both mixing and spinning down. Even max spin down is 1300 x g, it is confirmed that this machine can execute ethanol precipitation of nucleotide extracted from cells.
For extracting DNA/RNA from plant tissue by crushing (mashing)
Broccoli (bud) + zirconia ball

Arabidopsis (leaf) + metal crusher

Tissues such as leaves of Arabidopsis can be crushed by zirconia ball or metal crusher (sold separately). It is effective to freeze when extracting RNA. Actual achievement will be uploaded to “BUGCRASHER.COM” as needed so please take a look at.
Can process maximum of 12 samples simultaneously
One of the merit of this product is more sample number can be processed compare to mortar. It can load 12 of 1.5/2.0ml micro tubes (when using metal crusher, capacity is down to 6 due to its weight)
