The gentleMACS™ Dissociator is a benchtop instrument for the semi-automated dissociation of tissues into single-cell suspensions or thorough homogenates. A single sample or two samples in parallel can be processed. Two types of unique gentleMACS Tubes used with the instrument enable the time-saving and easy dissociation or homogenization of tissues in a closed system. The instrument offers optimized gentleMACS Programs for a variety of specific applications. Special protocols have been developed for various tissues. The standardized tissue dissociation or homogenization procedures make for reliable and reproducible results.
gentleMACS™ Octo Dissociator with Heaters
The gentleMACS™ Octo Dissociator with Heaters is a benchtop instrument for the fully automated and standardized tissue dissociation or homogenization of up to eight samples.
Equipped with eight individual heating units and numerous optimized and ready-to-use gentleMACS Programs the gentleMACS Octo Dissociator with Heaters offers a fully automated workflow for tissue dissociation. In addition the instrument allows the user to create user-defined programs for almost any biological material. All eight positions can be operated independently.
Single-cell suspensions or thorough homogenates are easily and reproducibly obtained using the unique C Tubes or M Tubes. These single-use gentleMACS Tubes allow sample preparation in a closed and sterile system, providing a high level of user safety and minimize cross-contamination.
MACSmix™ Tube Rotator
The MACSmix™ Tube Rotator is a versatile instrument running on rechargeable batteries and operating independently of a permanent power supply. Alternatively, mains operation is possible. It is suitable for a temperature range of 2 °C to 42 °C and can, therefore, be placed in a refrigerator or incubator.
The MACSmix Tube Rotator is provided with two different racks which can be equipped with tubes from 0.5 mL to 50 mL in size. The device operates at three different speeds or at set intervals.
