The Bullet Blender® enables you to homogenize, disrupt, or lyse up to 24 tissue or cell culture samples in minutes. Load the samples (up to 300ul, 0.3g) a snap-cap microcentrifuge tube. It is very easy to load samples and because this instrument uses very little power samples do not heat up significantly.You can homogenize samples as tough as mouse femur, tumor and skin, as well as difficult to lyse cells such as yeast and algae. The Standard Bullet Blender can also be used to vortex samples,
Why choose the Bullet Blender?
Consistent and High Yield Results: The BULLET BLENDER homogenizer prepares up to 24 samples in just minutes. All of the samples are automatically homogenized in the same manner, with high yields, so there is very little variation from sample to sample.
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: No cool down required. There is very little heating of the samples because the sample tubes vibrate vigorously in air, keeping them cool as the Bullet Blender applies rapid bursts of agitation. Many of our competitors’ bead mill homogenizers require cool down periods because the samples heat up because of limited air exchange to keep them cool, and/or continuous high frequency agitation. The Bullet Blender’s unique, elegant design also means that the motor does not need to agitate any heavy platforms or plates. Thus the Bullet Blender uses very little power, further keeping the samples cooler, and it will last for many years. Early units from 2006 are still in use.
So Easy To Use: Simply place your sample, beads and buffer in standard tubes, and load the tubes into the BULLET BLENDER homogenizer. 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.
Risk Free Purchase: BULLET BLENDER homogenizers come with a 7 day money back guarantee and a 2 year warranty. The simple, reliable design enables the BULLET BLENDER to sell for one half the price of other agitation based instruments, yet provides an easier, quicker, cooler technique.

Goodbye Mortar & Pestle Review by Sue from University of London
Its been a real "godsend". I had to use the mortar and pestle which has always been a real pain. I can now grind down my tissue samples with ease. We purchased the beads and tubes which can be a little fiddly but very easy when i got the hang. I haven't tried the ready made kits yet but will look at them down the line. (Posted on 28/04/2016)
Fixed my contamination problems Review by Jane
This system was very affordable and has fixed my contamination issues. It has also increased our throughput. can be a little noisy but nothing unbearable. Very happy with the support provided by Chembio for the protocol design (Posted on 06/11/2014)
