Food testing for pesticides, herbicides, mycotoxins, vitamins and other common residues routinely requires the homogenisation of the food matrix prior to solid phase extraction. This step produces a sample of uniform consistency, high surface area and easy accessibility for extraction of the required analytes.

The Biotage Lysera is specifically designed for the grinding, lysing and homogenisation of biological samples prior to any form of sample extraction. Using sample tubes pre-filled with a variety of beads, the Lysera vigorously and uniformly shakes the tubes providing an efficient, consistent and quality homogenisation usually in less than 40 seconds.

Samples are enclosed in individual vessels to prevent cross-contamination and can accommodate dry or wet homogenisation of samples from milligram to gram quantities.

Available with a wide range of accessories the Lysera enables processing of samples in volumes ranging from 0.5 to 50 mL. The optional Cryo Cooling Unit is designed to prevent the increase of sample temperature during the homogenisation process.

The unit is suitable for use within the food industry for soft (eg, meat, vegetables) and tough tissues (eg, bone, grains, seeds, soil, etc) and microorganisms (eg, gram+, gram-, yeast, etc) using a range of bead mixes.

Other features include: simultaneously homogenise up to 24 samples per cycle; broad speed range 0.8–8 m/s; process hundreds of samples per day; processing range 25 μL to 50 mL; run time 1 s–10 min.
