Description

The Bioruptor® Sonicator uses ultrasound technology to disrupt, disperse, or shear a variety of sample types for different applications. The Diagenode Bioruptor NGS ® is a sonication system ideal for chromatin shearing (for ChIP), genomic DNA shearing for next generation sequencing, RNA shearing, cell and tissue disruption, and much more.

It uniformely process multiple samples in sealed tubes of 0.5 ml to 15 ml capacity. The built-in cooling system (water cooler and single cycle valve) ensures high precision temperature control to protect samples and allows all the samples (up to 12) to be efficiently sonicated in parallel.
