Bertin technologiesOptional upgrade for chilled homogenisation

Cryolys is the perfect option for Precellys for temperature control during homogenization.

  • Keep tissue at optimal temperature during homogenization
  • Control temperature inside tubes for any soft or hard tissue Precellys protocols.
  • Protect sensitive molecules from degradation
  • Get higher yield, quality and functionnality.
  • Prevent enzymes from becoming active
  • Retain 100% active proteins.
  • Compatible with any Precellys


Cryolys prevents increasing of temperature during lysis process and enhance efficiency of molecular extraction leading to premium quality analysis.

1 - Compressed air goes through liquid nitrogen in the Cryolys
2 - Cold compressed air is sprayed inside the Precellys 24 specific Cover
3 - Samples are cooled and temperature sensitive molecules keep their native state

The Precellys Evolution has the capability to process 4 different sizes of tubes and up to 24 tubes simultaneously. Its flexibility and high efficiency gives users the ability to grind, homogenize or lyse any type of soft or hard sample from animal, human, plant or microorganism, in about 30 seconds. Read more »

Precellys 24Precellys 24
The Precellys 24 is a highly efficient rapid cell lysis and homogenising instrument designed to liberate DNA, RNA and proteins from a wide range of specimens. Utilising a bead beating process coupled with a powerful figure of 8 motion allows lysis to be achived with very short programs typically less than one minute. Read more »

 Homogenisation tubes
For automated lysis Stretton Scientific offer a range of pre-filled homogenisation consumables. The pre-filled sterilised tubes are supplied with a range of grinding media selected to optimise applications. The beads range from 2.8mm steel beads for highly resistant tissue such as bone and hair down to 0.1mm glass beads for bacteria,spores and yeast. Read more »
