Bead mill homogenizers & beads
Bead mills, also known as bead beaters are typically used for the lysis laboratory samples that are very difficult to disrupt with standard mechanical homogenizers. The combination of the rotational effect and the grinding beads produces a faster, more effective lysing / homogenization process for biological samples.
Bead mill homogenizers also allow for closed vessel and multiple sample processing with no risk of cross-contamination. These homogenizers are very beneficial to laboratories that often process multiple small-volume samples.
