Microfluidizer Processor Cell Disruptors
Microfluidizer® cell disruptors are ideally suited to rupturing various cell types, including bacterial, yeasts, insect, mammalian, plant and algae cells, due to the wide and controlled shear rate range they can apply to the sample.
This control enables researchers to optimise the process parameters to achieve effective rupture rates while minimising the excess energy introduction to the system and avoiding denaturation of delicate proteins.
We approached Analytik to find a replacement for a high-pressure homogeniser from another manufacturer, which had been unreliable and failed to achieve sufficient lysis of our tough yeast cells even after very many passes. We selected the LM20 Microfluidizer not only because it efficiently lysed a broad range of cell types but also was incredibly simple and easy to use which is very important as many different people need to use the machine regularly.
