Next Advance Bead Lysis Kits are pre-filled 1.5 ml RINO screw-cap tubes with bead combinations optimized to homogenize your specific tissue sample. Bead lysis kits are available RNase-free or non-sterile. Available in packs of 50 or 250. INO tubes can be used in Bullet Blender® Gold 24 (BB24-AU), Bullet Blender Storm Pro (BT24M) and Bullet Blender Storm 24 (BBY24M) units (only use with RINO lid gasket installed). Not suitable for snap-cap-only models of the Bullet Blender - the standard Bullet Blender and the Bullet Blender Blue (BBX24 and BBX24B). For those models, or if you prefer Eppendorf Safe-Lock snap-cap tubes, click here for bead kits in Eppendorf snap-cap tubes.
Please note that RINO lysis kits should not be centrifuged at speeds higher than 14,000 RCF with the beads inside, as the weight of the beads can cause the tubes to leak.
PINK - Soft to Medium Organ Tissue, Small Samples. The best for small soft samples with buffer volumes between 100μL and 300μL. Pink Bead Lysis Kits are filled with a mix of zirconium oxide beads for small samples of soft material like liver
GREEN - Tough Organ Tissue, Small Samples. Green Bead Lysis Kits are filled with a mix of stainless steel beads for buffer volumes between 100μL and 300μL. They’re excellent for small samples of tougher material like muscle
RED - Soft to Medium Organ Tissue, Large Samples. Ideal for medium soft samples with buffer volumes between 300μL and 600μL. Red Bead Lysis Kits are filled with a mix of zirconium oxide beads for medium samples of soft material
NAVY - Tough Organ Tissue, Large Samples. Navy Bead Lysis Kits are filled with a custom mix of stainless steel beads for buffer volumes between 300μL and 600μL. They’re great for samples too large for a Green kit, and deliver extra homogenizing power for challenging samples like bone, tumors, and hard-shelled insects such as ticks
YELLOW - High yielding bacterial lysis.
ORANGE - Extracting intact bacteria or generating single cell suspensions from tissue samples (available in RNase-free only)
