Molecular Biology Sample Preparation System

Nothing Resists Grinding, Lysis and Homogenization Using the High-Throughput FastPrep-96™ System for the Most Advanced, Rapid, and Thorough Extraction of DNA, RNA, Proteins and other Metabolites.

The FastPrep-96™ system delivers high-throughput sample homogenization, grinding and lysis with the highest efficiency, quality and reproducibility. Perform your DNA, RNA, protein and small molecule extractions from the most difficult, dirty, tough, large or tiny samples.

With the highest power settings available, FastPrep-96™ utilizes high-speed linear motion to disrupt any tissues or cells thoroughly through the simultaneous beating of specialized lysing matrix particles.

FastPrep-96™ offers the widest variety of sample adapters (2 x 96 deep well plates, 96 x 2 mL, 48 x 4.5 mL, 24 x 15 mL, 8 x 50 mL and 1 x 250 mL tubes) and a simple, accurate, closed loop control of lysing power and speed. All this and more make the new FastPrep-96™ the perfect solution for all of your high volume sample preparation needs.

The FastDNA-96™ series of kits are designed for the simple and rapid isolation of high purity, PCR-ready DNA from human, animal and plant tissues, microbes and yeast, soil and other samples. This series of products can be used to isolate DNA from tough-to-lyse samples as well as from dirty (i.e. highly contaminated) samples such as forensic samples, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and algae.

The purification step removes all of the PCR inhibitors, which are commonly found in a variety of dirty and difficult samples such as in wastewater, fecal materials, soils, sediments and others. Samples are rapidly ground, homogenized and lysed. Cells are efficiently lysed by bead beating inside FastPrep-96™ system, utilizing our state of the art, ultra-high density Lysing Matrix series of beads, prepackaged in the deep 96 well plate format.

FastSpin plate and other standard format technology is then used to isolate the DNA, which, if necessary is subsequently filtered to remove humic acids and polyphenols which can inhibit PCR. The procedure can be performed in minutes. There is no need for organic denaturants or proteinases.
