Tissue Dissociation and Homogenization


GentleMACS Octo Dissociator

The gentleMACS is a bench top instrument for automated tissue dissociation for single cell suspensions or tissue homogenization for RNA isolation of up to eight samples at a time.  The instrument uses special designed disposable tubes that depend on your application.  Typical samples used on the instrument include human or mouse tumors, neural tissues, heart or brain samples, and can also handle plant samples for nuclei isolation.  Researchers can be trained to use the instrument independently. For more information see the manufacturer's website.
