Qiagen TissueLyser LT
The TissueLyser LT is a powerful bead mill designed for simultaneous fast and efficient disruption of up to 12 samples. Shaking samples in 2 ml microcentrifuge tubes with stainless steel or glass beads enables simultaneous disruption and homogenization, which is ideal for labs with high throughput demands. The TissueLyser LT Adapter is required to hold the tubes during disruption.
The TissueLyser LT is a compact and efficient bead mill system that enables simultaneous disruption of up to 12 samples. Its small footprint makes it ideal for any laboratory, while its coolable adapter prevents biomolecule degradation, ensuring reproducible results with all sample types. The TissueLyser LT system delivers rapid and thorough disruption of samples to release biomolecules fully and simultaneously homogenizes samples to facilitate subsequent purification procedures using QIAGEN kits.
It is compatible with all laboratory workflows and complements QIAGEN’s range of automated solutions for medium-throughput sample preparation and analysis. The TissueLyser LT Adapter holds tubes during the disruption process and is compatible with stainless steel or glass beads, which can be dispensed using the included bead dispensers.
The TissueLyser LT is an essential tool for genotyping, gene expression, and proteomics applications that require effective disruption of biological samples to ensure high yields of DNA, RNA, and protein. The TissueLyser LT system delivers fast and uniform disruption of animal and human tissues, plant tissues, bacteria, and yeast in the TissueLyser LT Adapter, which holds up to twelve 2 ml sample tubes. It is fully compatible with QIAGEN manual sample preparation kits and automated medium-throughput sample preparation and analysis solutions.
The TissueLyser LT Adapter can be precooled on dry ice to prevent nucleic acids and protein degradation when disrupting fresh or frozen samples. Tissues stored in Allprotect Tissue Reagent or RNAprotect Tissue Reagent require no precooling of the adapter, making it easier to work with different sample types. The ability to process up to 12 samples per run makes the TissueLyser LT the ideal front-end solution to access biological information for genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics applications.
The TissueLyser LT has been proven to deliver effective tissue disruption, as demonstrated by the purification of DNA and RNA from various rat tissues using QIAGEN purification kits on the QIAcube. The TissueLyser LT is an integral part of QIAGEN’s complete solution for sample management, providing researchers with a reliable and efficient method for extracting and purifying biomolecules from a wide range of sample types.
The TissueLyser LT is a compact and versatile bead mill that can simultaneously disrupt up to 12 samples using high-speed shaking of 2 ml microcentrifuge tubes with stainless steel or glass beads. The instrument has a small footprint of 150 mm width, 270 mm depth, and 280 mm height and weighs approximately 7 kg. The power supply is compatible with voltages ranging from 100-240 V.
The TissueLyser LT features a coolable adapter that prevents biomolecule degradation and delivers reproducible results with all sample types. This technology is ideal for sample preparation and disruption in genotyping, gene expression, and proteomics applications. The TissueLyser LT is fully compatible with all laboratory workflows and all kits for purifying RNA/DNA/protein.
The typical run time for the TissueLyser LT is 40 seconds to 5 minutes, depending on the protocol. Overall, the TissueLyser LT is an efficient and reliable instrument for sample disruption and homogenization, making it an essential tool for molecular biology research.
