Disruptor Genie

Category Bead Mill Homogenizer
Manufacturer Scientific Industries Inc
Country of manufacture the United States of America

Cell disruptor with complete control of speed and time. Ideal for releasing biological molecules from inside a cell. More than vortexing alone, patented multi-directional action simultaneously agitates and vortexes at high-speed producing greater yields in less time. Supplied with Universal Microtube Holder (tubes not included) and Pop-off Cup. Also available in a Digital model - ideal for accurate, reproducible, repeatable results featuring adjustable speed and speed alarm.


  • Dramatically Increased Sample Disruption Efficiency.
  • Ideal for difficult glass bead procedures - cell disruption/homogenization of yeast, bacteria, plant and animal tissue and pellet resuspensions or anything that requires extremely violent high-speed agitation.
  • Patented multi-directional action simultaneously agitates and vortexes at high-speed producing greater yields in less time.
  • Hands-Free disruption of up to twelve 1.5 or 2.0ml microtubes with timer from 0-15 minutes or continuous operation.
  • Performance comparable to expensive ultrasonic cell disruptors/homogenizers.
  • Suitable for use in cold rooms or incubators.
  • Remove the microtube holder and attach the supplied Pop-off Cup for high-speed vortexing of single test tubes.
