Spectro Biotek Instruments
The 2010 Geno/Grinder®, the ultimate plant and animal tissue homogenizer and cell-lyser features an adjustable clamp that accommodates a variety of sample formats ranging from deep-well titer plates to centrifuge tubes. Its high-throughput capabilities allow it to process up to four – deep-well titer plates or up to sixteen – 50mL centrifuge tubes simultaneously. The Geno/Grinder is specifically designed for rapid cell disruption, lysis, and tissue homogenization while preserving temperature sensitive samples with Kryo-Tech® accessories. Patent Pending

Typical samples include: QuEChERS, Plant and Animal Tissues, Cell Cultures, Seeds, Yeast, RNA/DNA Extraction, and Bacteria


  • • Automated mechanical disruption ideal for high-throughput applications involving sample preparation for DNA, RNA, and protein extractions, pesticide residue analysis, and more.

    Patent Pending
  • • Equipped with digital timer, lockdown lid, and safety interlock for operator protection.
  • • Laboratory mill designed for vigorous up-and-down shaking of deep-well titer plates, vial sets, and centrifuge tubes.
  • • Optional Kryo-Tech Accessories enable cryogenic grinding and preserve temperature sensitive samples for RNA and protein extractions.
  • • Optional Large Clamp Assembly holds four deep-well titer plates, multiple centrifuge tubes, and other large grinding vials.
  • • Standard Clamp Assembly holds two deep-well titer plates, vial sets, or cryo-blocks.
  • • Strong vertical clamp movement of 500-1750 strokes/minute ensures that grinding media directly impact the sample each and every time.
  • • Typical sample processing time of 1-2 minutes.
