Santa Ana, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/23/2014 -- Mechanical sample lysis is rapidly becoming the preferred sample preparation method in life science labs for the isolation of DNA, RNA, proteins, metabolites and other small molecules because the elimination of chemicals, enzymes, and detergents minimizes the introduction of potential inhibitors to downstream processes. The FastPrep-24 5G™ is the newest innovation in benchtop reciprocating homogenizers offering the ultimate in speed and performance for the optimal lysis of biological samples. The FastPrep-24 5G is a software controlled, standalone instrument, designed with a first-of-its-kind user-friendly touch screen interface as well as many unique and innovative features.
Developed for difficult and resistant samples, the FastPrep-24 5G is a state of the art homogenizer instrument that grinds, lyses and homogenizes thoroughly and quickly any tissue and cells providing easy and reproducible isolation and purification of stable RNA, active proteins and full-length genomic DNA. The FastPrep-24 5G has intuitive software, easy touch screen programming and over 70 optimized pre-programmed application protocols. The FastPrep-24 5G delivers the most DNA, RNA and proteins from any sample type including the most resistant in 40 seconds of less. The FastPrep-24 5G system can successfully process all types of human, animal and plant tissues including cultured cells; bacterial, yeast and fungal cells, including spores and oocytes; and environmental and metagenomic samples including soil and fecal samples.
MP Biomedicals, the leader in Sample Preparation, proudly introduces the newest member of the FastPrep Family of Sample Preparation Systems, the FastPrep-24 5G! The state of the art FastPrep-24 5G system has the highest speed and provides micro-processor and software control with a touch-screen user interface that gives you knowledge and power at your fingertips. Features of the new FastPrep-24 5G instrument offering the most advanced homogenization and extraction solution include:
Most Powerful- Highest speed available, improves the quality, yields and purity of the resultant analyte
Exclusive Software & Touchscreen: Intuitive, easy touch screen programming or choose from over 70 optimized application protocol programs, Just Pick and Start!
Most Flexible- Largest variety of interchangeable sample holders, process from 2- 50 ml under ambient or cryogenic conditions
Best Complete Solution- FastPrep-24 5G system, FastPrep Kits, Lysing Matrix Compositions & Tubes and Purification Kits are optimized to provide the highest quality results from any sample type.
The heartbeat of the FastPrep-24 5G is the touch screen display with microprocessor control. The display is a large, 7” diagonal HD monitor that is activated by a touch of the finger. The microprocessor controls the graphical user interface allowing the end-user to easily navigate through a choice of over 70 optimized application programs, user-defined saved custom programs or to easily create a new application protocol program.
Recommended optimized application protocol programs are the heart of the FastPrep-24 5G’s functionality. These validated optimized application protocol programs include all variable assay parameters. This is a valuable optimization tool for new users and is of special interest to those who are working with pathogenic or dangerous samples, as well as low abundance samples.
The FastPrep-24™ 5G has the highest speed and combined with a unique optimized motion to disrupt cells through the multidirectional simultaneous beating of specialized Lysing Matrix beads on the sample material this new homogenizer provides quick, efficient and highly reproducible homogenization, getting your DNA, RNA and proteins into the protective buffer faster, resulting in higher quality and yields!
The FastPrep-24 5G USB port allows users to upgrade software as they become available easily by simply connecting to a laptop or PC. A custom FastPrep App uploads new software versions quickly to the instrument. The FastPrep App also allows the option to download assay history from the FastPrep-24 5G’s memory to the attached computer in the form of a CSV file. This feature is of critical importance in lab settings were run verification/ documentation is necessary.
The FastPrep-24 5G is a novel, ultra-high performance, sample preparation system that allows for the best extraction of fully intact, biologically functional macromolecules from any type of sample including the most resistant samples and provides the highest yields. The FastPrep-24 5G is a software controlled, standalone instrument, designed with a first-of-its-kind user-friendly touch screen interface as well as many unique and innovative features such as over 70 optimized application protocol programs.
