Tissue Homogenizers – Sample preparation for Environment - Environmental

Soil and environmental analysis often focus on microbiology studies and pollution impact on wildlife. Microorganisms included in a biological matrix are particularly challenging to lyse.

A major application for the Precellys is environmental microbiology studies as well as pollution impacts on wildlife.

Lysing microorganisms that are included in biological matrixes such as leaves can be particularly difficult to homogenize, and many environmental analyses use plant models to study microbial expansion and its potential impacts on wildlife. Complete tissue homogenization is needed to extract high quality DNA, RNA or protein for further downstream processing. For applications such as microarray or sequencing analysis, Precellys homogenizers help to maintain reproducibility among biological replicates during nucleic acid extraction.
