The Qiagen™ TissueLyser II® is a laboratory vibration mill made to homogenize tissue and
protein samples by shaking the samples in enclosed block adapters with glass or metal beads.
This machine comes without the adapters or beads, and these will have to be located
and purchased by the buyer. CSI does not provide consumables for this instrument, although they
are readily available through outside sources and Qiagen. Speed settings are adjustable from 3-30Hz
(180-1800 oscillations/minute) and the time of the run can be set from 10 seconds to 99 minutes.
A shutoff switch is incorporated for safety in case the cover is opened before completion of the run.
This machine runs on 100-240VAC at 50/60Hz and a 120V power cord is included. A user’s manual is also included. We tested this machine at our lab in Sonora California and it worked perfectly. Our price is about $2000 less than any others on the internet due to the lack of adapters and because we don’t mind giving our customers a fair price. Even with the added expense of purchasing the adapters separately this will be about $1000 cheaper than buying a complete unit elsewhere.
We will ship this in two boxes. The last one of these we sold arrived at our customer’s location with a broken lid due to careless handling by UPS, which was a real problem since Qiagen charges $2000 for a new lid. So with this machine we will remove the lid (four screws, very simple) and ship it in another box VERY well protected with bubblewrap and foam rubber. We like our customers to receive their purchases undamaged, and go to great lengths to pack accordingly.
