Bullet Blender® 5E Pro

Category Bead Mill Homogenizer
Manufacturer Next Advance
Country of manufacture the United States

Homogenizer for 12 samples in 5mL snap-cap tubes with more powerful motor, touch screen and Air Cooling. Includes starter kit of beads, scoops and tubes. CE certified. Load the samples into the tubes, place them in the Bullet Blender, set the time and speed and you're ready! The "bullets" in the instrument vigorously strike all of the tubes and homogenize your sample in minutes.

The all new Bullet Blender 5E Pro is still our most powerful homogenizer, only now featuring an upgraded touch screen. Process up to 12 samples at a time in 5 mL Eppendorf® tubes. Great for very tough samples 100mg to 1 g in size. Includes air cooling, built-in sound insulation for quieter operation, and an upgraded motor for more efficient homogenization of tougher samples as well as faster homogenization of soft ones! 

All of the samples are automatically homogenized in the same manner to minimize sample-to-sample variability. 

Includes a Bead Sample Pack, Spoon for dispensing beads, and a Sample pack of 5 mL Eppendorf tubes

No Cross-Contamination or Sample Loss

There are no probes or blades to cause cross contamination or sample loss, which also means there are no parts to clean between runs. The sample tubes are kept closed and self-contained during homogenization. 

Samples Stay Cool

The instrument uses little power due to the unique, patented design, so there is very little heat build up in the instrument or inside the sample tubes. It uses a DC motor to agitate the individual tubes.  Designed for reliability and durability, with few moving parts and a very low rate of motor wear. 

Easy To Use

Simply place your sample, beads and buffer in standard tubes, and load the tubes into the Bullet Blender. Tune the extent of disruption by adjusting the run time and speed. Afterwards, place the sample tubes in a centrifuge to separate the lysate. No special holders are needed. There are no clamp plates nor locking rings to fiddle with.
