A lab homogenizer is used for breaking apart cellular structures so their latent components may be extracted and analyzed. 

There are many different tools and methods used to achieve this. For a good overview, please see the blog post entitled "Go knock your-cells out" which our team published a while back. 

Other entries in this category are sonicators and disruptors. Sometimes these overlap with laboratory vortexers or vortex mixers since the mechanical operation is closely related. 

Our BeadBug and BeadBlaster homogenizers from Benchmark Scientific can be equipped with beads for nearly all applications. Benchmark publishes this data on their website which can be viewed by following this link.

Once you have determined the correct type and size of bead for your sample, let Stellar Scientific put one of these excellent instruments to work for you and your research team.
