PreOmics launches product for high throughput tissue homogenisation  

PreOmics, developer of tools for mass spectrometry-based protein analyses, has launched BeatBox, its new sample preparation tool for tissues and cells. BeatBox delivers tissue homogenisation and can process up to 96 tissue samples in 10 minutes from 1-5 mg of tissue, with no cross-contamination.   

According to the company, BeatBox was shown to provide higher extraction of proteins from limited tissue inputs (1-2mg), the highest throughput, an improvement in reproducibility of 2.5x across different tissue types and the fastest processing time of 10 minutes in a comparison with two commercial homogenisers at a proteomics research laboratory. 

Nils Kulak and Garwin Pichler, Managing Directors of PreOmics, said: “A reproducible and reliable proteomics tissue homogenisation process needs to release the maximum amount of protein, maintain sample integrity and minimise cross-contamination. Users currently have to contend with the space occupied by the large homogenisation instruments, the noise made by some processes and the challenges that come with managing costs while wanting to process high sample numbers.”
