Precellys® Evolution is a universal tissue homogenizer, combining flexibility with high efficiency for almost any life science homogenization application.

The Precellys Evolution offers optimal robustness, safety, efficiency and flexibility. Especially designed for L3 laboratories, the Precellys® Evolution is based on 10 years of sample preparation expertise. The instrument’s unique figure-8 multi-directional motion provides the same high level of energy and homogenization efficiency to all the tubes.

The Precellys Evolution has the capability to process 4 different sizes of tubes and up to 24 tubes simultaneously. Its flexibility and high efficiency gives users the ability to grind, homogenize or lyse any type of soft or hard sample from animal, human, plant or microorganism in about 30 seconds.

The Precellys Evolution includes the necessary adapters for 2 ml or 0.5 ml tubes.  The adapters for 7 ml or 15 ml tubes are purchased separately.

While the Precellys Evolution includes a 1-year warranty, an extended 2-year or 3-year warranty may be purchased (extended warranty must be purchased at the time the Precellys Evolution is purchased).  For each additional year of warranty, a maintenance kit is provided which includes 2 vacuum joints, 1 anti-rotation tubing kit, and 1 containment seal.

    What are the primary differences between the Precellys 24 and the Precellys Evolution?

    There are three main differences:

    1. ​Power. The Precellys Evolution has almost 50% higher max RPM than the Precellys 24.
    2. Flexibility with regards to sample size. The Precellys 24 holds 24x 2ml tubes. The Precellys Evolution also comes with an adapter that does the same, but there are additional, optional adapters that hold either 12x 7 ml tubes or 6x 15 ml tubes, allowing processing of larger samples.
    3. If you're interested in keeping samples cool, the Cryolys cooling unit is much better for the Precellys Evolution. The Cryolys for the Precellys 24 is a standalone item which takes up about an equivalent amount of bench space to the Precellys 24 and requires a compressed air connection (or house pressurized air). The Cryolys for the Precellys Evolution is a relatively small "cap"-like device which sits on top of the Precellys Evolution so it doesn't take up any additional bench space and it does not require an air hookup.

     ... and of course there's the cost difference.


    What are the safety features of the Precellys Evolution which make it suitable for BSL-3 labs?

    1. Top and pressure alarm: If the lid is not securely closed or the blocking plate is not placed correctly on the tube holder to lock the samples in place, the unit will not start the run.
    2. Compatibility with vaporized hydrogen peroxide decontamination (see picture below). Vaporized H2O2 can be used to decontaminate the unit in case of tube breakage.
    3. Containment seal which isolates the homogenization chamber from both the external environment and the internal mechanical parts.
