Bullet Blender Homogenizer

Bullet Blender – let us demo!

The easiest and coolest way to lyse cells and homogenize tissue.

The BULLET BLENDER® enables you to homogenize, disrupt, or lyse up to 24 tissue or cell culture samples at a time. Load the samples into standard polypropylene tubes, then place them in the BULLET BLENDER. The “bullets” in the instrument vigorously strike all of the tubes and homogenize your sample in minutes. The Bullet Blender is available with Air Cooling™ to preserve your sample quality!
