Cell Culture Homogenizer & Homogenization Protocol

Ideal for Cell Culture Homogenization

Do you spend lots of time and effort homogenizing cell culture samples? The Bullet Blender® is a multi-sample homogenizer that delivers high quality and superior yields. No other homogenizer comes close to delivering the Bullet Blender’s winning combination of top-quality performance and budget-friendly affordability.

The Bullet Blender® Homogenizer
Save Time, Effort and Get Superior Results

  • Consistent and High Yield Results
    Run up to 24 samples at the same time under microprocessor-controlled conditions, ensuring experimental reproducibility and high yield. Process samples from 10mg or less up to 3.5g.
  • No Cross Contamination
    No part of the Bullet Blender® ever touches the cell culture samples – the sample tubes are kept closed during homogenization. There are no probes to clean between samples.
  • Samples Stay Cool
    Homogenizing causes only a few degrees of heating. Our Gold models keep samples at 4°C.
  • Easy and Convenient to Use
    Just place beads and buffer along with your cell culture sample in standard tubes, load tubes directly in the Bullet Blender, select time and speed, and press start.
  • Risk Free Purchase
    The Bullet Blender® comes with a 30 day money back guarantee and a 2 year warranty, with a 3 year warranty on the motor. The simple, reliable design enables the Bullet Blenders to sell for a fraction of the price of ultrasonic or other agitation based instruments, yet provides an easier, quicker technique.
