The technology behind BERTIN's Precellys Evolution Touch tissue homogenizer is based on more than 15 years of experience in sample preparation. The device is said to be used to homogenize any biological sample, whether animal, human or plant, and regardless of whether the tissue is hard or soft.

Based on the multidirectional movement of the beads in the tubes, 3D bead-beating homogenization is the most efficient and reproducible method compared to conventional methods such as mortars and pestles, sonication, mixers or high-pressure homogenizers, according to the France-based company. The speed can be set up to 10,000 rpm and the new intuitive touchscreen user interface allows the machine to be operated even with gloves on.

With the Precellys Evolution Touch, users can use six different tube volumes (from 0.3 to 50mL) and prepare between one and 96 tubes at a time. In fields as diverse as pharmacology, medical research, forensics, microbiology or agronomy, the Precellys Evolution Touch is designed to save users valuable time in their routine and R&D projects if they require tissue homogenization or cell disruption, which is crucial for the extraction of proteins, drugs, metabolites, RNA or DNA.

According to BERTIN, it takes only a few seconds to prepare samples, even for the hardest tissues such as teeth, bones or hair. In record time, users' samples are said to be ready for analysis, whether they use PCR, Western Blot, mass spectrometry, high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) or next-generation sequencing (NGS).
