Precellys® 24 Touch is the ideal lab homogenizer to prepare any kind of biological sample, from the softest to the hardest, regardless of its origin (animal tissues,plant tissues, microorganisms…). It can treat up to 24 samples at a time and has been validated on more than 1,500 different samples: from brain, muscle and heart samples, to very hard material such as bones, hair and seeds. The intuitive touchscreen interface of Precellys® 24 Touch makes it really easy to use. Thanks to its exclusive vacuum-based tube locking system and its specific design, Precellys® 24 Touch is compliant with safety requirements of the harshest lab environments, such as BSL3. With its powerful figure-8 multi-directional motion, Precellys® 24 Touch provides high energy to the beads contained in the tubes, allowing the homogenization of the samples in a few seconds (~30 sec) at speeds ranging from 4000 to 6800 rpm. Samples can then be processed for further analysis amongst a wide variety of techniques dedicated to DNA/RNA (PCR, electrophoresis, NGS, chips, etc), protein (blotting, mass spectrometry, etc.), or metabolites analyses (chromatography, etc.).
The Precellys utilizes a figure-8, multi-directional motion which conveys a very high kinetic energy to the beads, causing intense collisions which break apart samples. In many homogenizers, mechanical impacts between beads or between beads and the sample can generate heat. With the Precellys 24, the homogenization process is so fast that the temperature does not reach denaturation levels.
The Precellys has established protocols and various consumables for the processing of soft tissues, hard tissues, or microorganisms. Users can simply change the speed and beads to accommodate a number of applications, such as:
The Precellys has been designed specifically for biological sample preparation. Processing space is sealed off from the mechanical parts preventing any inside contamination, and individual sealed tubes prevent cross contamination between samples. Once your protocol is validated, the sample preparation process remains exactly the same with no variability. The Precellys was specifically developed and designed to be used in a BSL3 laboratory under high throughput conditions: 50 to 100 runs per day.
A 1-year warranty is standard with the Precellys. Extended 2-year or 3-year warranties are optional. 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.
The Precellys 24 is capable of homogenizing 24 samples of up to 1 g / 1.6 ml simultaneously in 2 ml tubes. If you have highly temperature sensitive samples and require that your homogenization is performed under refrigerated conditions, take a look at the Cryolys accessory, which maintains samples at approximately 4°C.

What are the primary differences between the Precellys 24 and the Precellys Evolution?
There are three main differences:
... and of course there's the cost difference.
