The BeadBug™ 6 joins the large capacity BeadBlaster™ 24 and personal sized.
BeadBug™ 3 as the newest member of the Benchmark homogenizer line.
Like the other members of the Benchmark Microtube Homogenizer family, the
BeadBug 6 utilizes a three-dimensional shaking motion to disrupt samples.

When combined with beads of the appropriate size and material, this motioncauses high velocity impacts with the sample and is an extremely fast and efficient method for releasing cellular contents, including nucleic acids and proteins. Many different sample types, from cells in culture to organ tissues and bone can be homogenized in the BeadBug 6, most within 45 seconds. Programming the unit is very simple – just set the speed, time, and number of cycles, pause between cycles, and then press start. For convenience, the last programmed parameters remain in memory for repeated runs.
