Bullet Blender Models

There are several Bullet Blender® models for different purposes and different size samples, using microcentrifuge tubes (0 – 300 uL samples), 5 mL tubes (0.1 – 1 mL samples), and 50 mL tubes (0.1 – 3.5 mL samples). The microcentrifuge tubes models include:
  • Bullet Blender Lite, a lower power model with the lowest cost and works only with snap cap tubes
  • Bullet Blender Storm Pro, based upon the most popular model, because it has a more powerful motor that can handle the toughest samples and Air Cooling, which forces ambient air past your samples. The Storm Pro model works with snap cap and our RINO® screw cap tubes, made from an extra tough material. This model has a color graphics screen with touch screen controls.
  • Bullet Blender Gold, the best model for working with RNA because it has the powerful motor found in the Storm model, works with snap cap and our RINO screw cap tubes, and incorporates dry ice 4°C Cooling™ to keep samples at 4°C. Using a temperature sensor in the instrument, monitoring the motor and using an algorithm, a fan is modulated to blow the right amount of air past dry ice and then mixed with ambient air in the instrument and past samples to keep them near 4°C. Bullet Blender Gold This model has a color graphics user control screen, an updatable library of protocols with color photographs and a user guide with instructions for preparing samples.
