- Ideal for applications involving sample prep for DNA, RNA, and protein extractions
The Chilled GenoLyte® is an efficient, compact laboratory homogenizer that uses a circulating chiller to maintain sample temperatures between 0 to 10° C while effectively disrupting cellular materials by horizontally oscillating 2 mL vials. Common samples include seeds, stems, roots, leaves, and animal tissue.
Operation is simple: the vials are secured in the sample cooling chamber, and the lid is closed. The controls are checked for the proper running time, rate, and the start button is pushed. When the run is complete, the lid is lifted and the vials are removed. The digital control panel allows you to set the timer in five-second increments; the timer sounds down in one-second intervals.
The vial holder accommodates three vials that are continuously cooled. A circulating chiller is required for continuous temperature control. The GenoLyte is compatible with Polystat® Circulating Baths or most circulating chiller systems. Purchase chiller and vials separately.
