Homogenizer for various starting materials
The SpeedMill PLUS is a highly efficient homogenization system for various starting materials used for the subsequent isolation and purification of DNA, RNA or proteins. The homogenization process is based on an innovative mechanical principle for which a patent has been filed. This new process allows users to operate the SpeedMill PLUS continuously if necessary. Based on a vertical movement, the process ensures that the samples are homogeneously disrupted without destroying the target molecules.

Efficient sample cooling: prior, during and after preparation
The optimized sample holders found in the SpeedMill PLUS can be freely adjusted at temperatures up to -80 ° C at various temperature levels. Accordingly, efficient cooling of the starting materials throughout the homogenization is ensured and the massive reheating of samples occurring in other homogenizers is effectively prevented. The often problematic handling of liquid nitrogen or dry ice is therefore a thing of the past. In addition, the significant cost factor of these additives, which must be continuously loaded, is eliminated. The sample holder also allows easy transport of the sample containers and long-term storage of the starting material and the homogenized material at adequate temperatures.

Modern preparation of samples: SpeedMill PLUS
The samples to be processed are rapidly and efficiently homogenized in Lysis Tubes that have been specially optimized for the system and, as such, contain different and/or application-specific beads. Using beads makes it possible to completely and reproducibly homogenize even the toughest starting materials, such as cartilage and chitin shells of insects or ticks within a very short time. 2.0 ml and 0.5 ml containers (Lysis Tubes) with different beads are available for sample preparation, allowing users to adapt sample processing to a diverse range of soft and hard starting materials. Operating processes, such as loading and removing of the sample tubes, are very simple and no tools are required. In addition userdefined protocols can be entered and saved as well as pre-installed programs are available. Homogenization parameters such as time and using cyclic routines are freely selectable.


Optimized extraction kits for the SpeedMill
The SpeedMill also accommodates kits for complete nucleic acid (DNA and RNA) isolation from various starting materials. All kits have been optimized for the SpeedMill for extremely fast and efficient nucleic acid isolation. The yields produced are impressively high and the quality of the isolated nucleic acids is outstanding. These kits contain special Lysis Tubes with application-specific beads as well as pre-made buffers. They also contain all other components needed for isolating DNA or RNA from different starting materials. Optimized kits for sample processing with the SpeedMill results in extremely rapid and highly efficient nucleic acid isolation. Both the yield and quality of the nucleic acids are excellent. The standard isolation protocol requires only about 20 to 30 minutes.
