Multiple sample homogenizing concerns

Multiple sample homogenizing can be time consuming and can create concerns of cross-contamination.

If you are using the same homogenizer probe for each sample, you risk ruining your sample by not thoroughly cleaning your homogenizing equipment in-between.  If you are using plastic disposable homogenizing probes, you risk wasting a lot of your budget on inferior homogenizing equipment.

PRO Multi-Gen 7XL Homogenizing package kits make multiple sample homogenizing easy and affordable and offer several advantages over plastic disposable probes including;

* Higher sample breakdown yields - Multi-Gen probes provide higher sample breakdown yields even for homogenization of difficult samples, including the toughest of tissues over plastic versions. This provides better performance in results in less time.

*Extended usage - Multi-Gen Probes were quality tested and run for 11 hours and showed no signs of wear because of its quality design and superior material. Plastic versions have limited usage, depending on brand some will even only allow 1-2 uses.  Plastic probes are commonly recommended as single use. In some cases, an overused plastic disposable probe or tough sample can shatter or splitter it during homogenizing.

*Chemical compatibility - Multi-Gen Probes material components of 316 Stainless Steel and PTFE provides a greater reagent compatibility compared to plastic models, which have significant limitations.  Plastic versions can only be cleaned with certain methods, and depending on brand, maybe autoclaved 1-2 times no matter the sample.

*Environmentally & budget conscious - Multi-Gen Probes are environmentally and budget friendly compared to continually discarding plastic versions.  Avoid making your homogenizing a consumable.  Multi-Gen Probes can be continually used, unlike a plastic probe that will need to be purchased again and again.

With so many samples to be homogenized in your lab, don’t waste any time with inferior homogenizing equipment and don’t keep throwing away your lab’s budget.   PRO’s Premium Multi-Gen 7XL homogenizing includes everything you need to begin homogenizing in tubes from 1.5ml up to 50ml!  Kits are bundled with up to a 13% off list price savings.  With over 25 years of experience, PRO Scientific knows what our customers need for their homogenizing applications.
