Bacteria Samples

Ideal for Bacteria Homogenization

Do you spend lots of time and effort homogenizing bacteria samples? The Bullet Blender® is a multi-sample homogenizer that delivers superior results. 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 bacteria 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 “Blue” model comes with a fan to maintain ambient temperatures.
  • Easy and Convenient to Use Just place beads and buffer along with your bacteria 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.
