  • Grinding plant tissue for DNA extractions
  • Preparation of cell ysates from yeast or fungi
  • Rapid resuspension of pellets
  • Dissolution of chemical substances

Dramatically increased disruption efficiency: Ideal for difficult glass bead procedures - cell disruptions/homogenizations of yeast cells, bacteria, plant and animal tissue and pellet resuspensions, or anything that requires extremely violent high-speed agitation.

More than Vortexing Alone: Patented multi-directional action simultaneously agitates and vortexes at high-speed producing greater yields in less time.

Digital Model for accurate, reproducible, repeatable results.

Convenient, Hands-Free, Automatically Timed disruption of up to 12 microtubes. 0-15 minute auto-off timer or continuous operation for Analog model. Digital model offers timer from 0-99 minutes or continuous.

Digital Model incorporates an adjustable speed alarm

Economical. Performance comparable to expensive ultrasonic cell disruptors/homogenizers. Compare favorably to Mini-Bead Beater*

Vortex-Genie Rugged Reliability. Solid metal casting and stainless steel construction. Does not "walk".

Suitable for Use in Cold Rooms or Incubators.

Vortex Too: Simply remove the Micro Tube holder and snap on the Pop-off Cup (supplied with the unit) to achieve continuous or timed 0-15 minutes - Analog or 0-99 minutes - Digital high-speed vortexing of single test tubes.
