Rapid hands-free disruption of up to 12 microtubes 1.5ml at a time
Timer for speed up to up to 99 minutes for Digital model or continuous
Suitable for use in cold rooms or incubators
Less costly than ultrasonic units or homogenizers
Use with disruptor beads, made from spherical lead free soda lime glass
The patented Digital Disruptor Genie provides multi-directional action, which simultaneously agitates and vortexes at high speed, dramatically increasing cell disruption or sample resuspension efficiency. An affordable alternative to expensive ultrasonic disruptors, it can hold up to twelve 1.5ml microtubes. Digital control of speed and time with speed alarm. The Digital Disruptor Genie is a vigorous mechanical cell disruption device. Applications include cell disruption of yeast, bacteria, plant and animal tissue and cell re-suspension for DNA mini-preps. The Digital Disruptor Genie may be used in a cold room. Cell Disruption Using Glass or Zirconia-Silica Beads The Digital Disruptor Genie consists of a Vortex-Genie Mixer base with a unique and patented accessory attached directly to the shaft eccentric of the mixer. The Digital Disruptor Genie dramatically increases the disruption efficiency of the disruption beads, glass or zirconia-silica, because of the unique and patented design of the sample holder. The second "Floating" Ring is free to move up and down and concentrically around the shaft with ample clearance between the ring and the shaft of the Digital Disruptor Genie patented accessory attachment. Twelve sample tubes are placed in the Upper Ring of the attachment and allowed to project through corresponding holes in the "Floating" Ring below. The holes in the "Floating" Ring are smaller than the orbit path of the shaft. Therefore, as each of the twelve tubes travel in an orbit corresponding in size with the orbit path of the shaft, the bottoms of the tubes repeatedly and vigorously collide within the confines of the holes in the "Floating" Ring. This action, in combination with the action of the disruption beads used inside the sample tubes, results in a significant increase in the impact frequency and force. The disruption efficiency is increased dramatically.
