BeadBug™ 3-Position Microtube Homogenizer

The BeadBug™ sets the performance standard for personal sized cell disruption and lysis instruments.

Developed for samples too tough to be homogenized in a common lab vortexer, the BeadBug provides a convenient and economical alternative to the traditional, over-priced homogenizers on the market today.

With a foot print of just 7 x 8" and a capacity of up to three tubes, the BeadBug is the ideal homogenizing instrument for low to medium throughput laboratories.

Simultaneous homogenization takes place (often within 45 seconds) of up to 3 samples inside the disposable 2 ml screw cap microtubes. The optimized mixing motion causes rapid cell disruption through constant high velocity impact from the hardened micro-beads chosen specifically for your sample type.


  • Extremely compact, less than 7" wide
  • Mix 1, 2 or 3 tubes simultaneously
  • Faster and more effective than tissue grinders
  • Extremely powerful mixing for lysis, grinding or homogenization
  • Eliminates the cross contamination associated with hand held homogenizers
