|Description||Terralyzer (1 Unit) with sample kits of: (1) Xpedition™ Soil/Fecal DNA MiniPrep (5 Preps) & (1) Xpedition™ Tissue & Insect DNA MiniPrep (5 Preps) (NO DEMOS)|
|Supplier||Zymo Research Europe GmbH|
|Notes||Degradation and contamination of biological samples have been obstacles to scientific study, and may be particularly problematic in highly sensitive molecular-analysis techniques (e.g., PCR of low copy DNA). Use of cryogenic freezing methods for environmental/forensic sample preservation may often be too impractical to be employed. The solution is the TerraLyzer and Xpedition Sample Prep Kits from Zymo Research. The TerraLyzer is a cordless, hand-held device developed for vigorous sample disruption (bead beating) that allows the researcher/investigator to “Take the Lab to the Field ; and to the site of sample collection. The TerraLyzer can be used to lyse microbes in soil, sediment, sludge, and fecal samples and can effectively process tough-to-lyse fungal, algal, plant, and animal tissues. It can be used at any remote location and in most weather conditions when immediate sample collection, processing, and preservation are required by the researcher. The device is compatible with most 2.0 ml tubes containing lysis matrix, though ZR BashingBead Tubes should be used to obtain maximum yields of DNA/RNA/Protein from tough-to-lyse and environmental sample sources. The TerraLyzer consists of a cordless, electric drive unit mounted to a unique, proprietary lysis chamber. It is designed to operate at full speed for as long as the trigger on the device is actuated and charge remains in the battery. This allows the researcher to maintain precise control of the time and extent of sample lysis.|
