- Tissue Homogenizer



The Minilys is a flexible and personal homogenizer for cell/sample disruption in daily lab workflow. Specially designed for low-throughput laboratory workflows and personal use, the Minilys homogenizes 3 samples simultaneously in 0.5ml/2 ml tubes or 1 sample in 7 ml. Small and compact, the Minilys requires minimal bench space in your laboratory. By having your own homogenizer, you no longer have to wait for your turn to homogenize your samples!

The Minilys is a small and compact homogenizer for fast hands-free disruption of a wide range of biological samples (prior to DNA. RNA. proteins or drug extraction) at a low throughput level. Flexible (0.5ml. 2ml, 7ml lysing tubes) and easy to handle, it is the only small homogenizer that works in 3D motion, following standard protocols and providing more homogeneous results. Moreover, the Minilys is extremely budget-friendly.

  • The only small & efficient homogenizer for 3D bead beating
  • Flexible & ready-to-use: a wide range of samples (type/volume) and parameters
  • Convenient for personal use
  • Safe & easy-to-handle system
  • Small equipment footprint

The Minilys inherits the bead-beating technology and quality from the Precellys range, and is by far the only small homogenizer that disrupts samples under a 3D motion on the market. With its powerful 8-figure motion, it efficiently disrupts samples in minutes and provides nucleic acids and proteins of high quality and yields.

Solidly and ergonomically designed, Minilys ensures easy-handling, safe operations and maximal durability in time. Its innovative security system stops automatically the operation if the lid is wrongly closed or opened, providing added safety for users. By simply adjusting the cycle duration and rotation speed, Minilys truly saves your time for an optimal sample preparation.

It accommodates a wide range of sample types from animal & plant tissues to microorganisms. With 3 different speeds from 3000-5000 rpm, Minilys can either handle low-velocity agitation or harsh homogenization. Detachable tube-holders are adapted to three volumes of lysing tubes (0,5mL, 2mL or 7mL), offering you the flexibility to vary your sample size and volume.

Furthermore, 15 references of lysing kits and validated protocols are fully optimized for use with all the homogenizers of Precellys range.
