Precellys Evolution homogenizer

Precellys Evolution is the most advanced tissue homogenizer combining high efficiency and versatility for all sample preparation needs.

Watch Precellys Evolution – the most efficient and flexible homogenizer – in action!

Genclis SAS is a CRO mainly working on food samples. The aim of this application is to extract proteins recognized by IgE antibodies from allergic patients. The challenge is to extract protein with the best possible quality. The Precellys Evolution tissue homogenizer extracts high quality proteins in large quantities from dry food samples. Moreover, the capacity to process 6 x 15mL tubes is a real advantage and saves time.

Easy handling:

  • The innovative and patented automatic tube locking system allows for easy handling of the Precellys Evolution without advanced training

Best life time:

  • The high quality manufacturing of the Precellys Evolution drastically reduces the need for maintenance and additional expenditure over the years – The Precellys Evolution is made in France

Adapted to any type of sample:

  • The high flexibility of the Precellys Evolution, which is capable of handling four sizes of tube (0.5, 2, 7 and 15 mL), makes it the perfect tool when processing samples of different sizes, weight or volume.

Protection for thermo-sensitive molecules:

  • The Precellys Evolution is compatible with the Cryolys cooling unit. This combination allows users to protect sensitive molecules when processing samples.


Precellys technology presents two main features:

1- The 8-figure 3D-motion (multi-directional) movement of the tubes. The same high level of energy given to the beads inside each tube ensures equal homogenization efficiency for all processed samples (up to 24 at once). Thanks to this complex movement, the Precellys Evolution can disrupt any type of sample (even the hardest) in seconds with perfect reproducibility while limiting heat generation.
2- The patented locking vacuum system of the tubes during the process. The Press’n block system saves time and energy. It makes it easier to handle equipment and secures the tubes before the grinding process.

Application and Product Specialist

"Working on RNA or proteins? Check the temperature increase. Use the Cryolys unit to prevent the degradation of your sensitive molecules"

François D'Hubert

Application and Product Specialist

"With its easy-to-change tube holders, the Precellys Evolution is the ideal instrument to be shared in a lab working with different types and weights of samples and searching the best grinding efficiency for each of them."


Rating: 4.7
Application Area: DNA extraction

"Overall, the machine is user friendly and easy to set up. Our biggest disappointment was that the Precellys will only work certain brand tubes, others didn't allow the vacuum to form and the machine didn't start with the tubes we frequently used in our lab so we had to switch the brand of lysis tubes. The results we obtained were great, great at lysing difficult to destroy animal tissue."

Rating: 5.0
Application Area: Tissue sample processing for metabolism studies

"Our lab purchased this homogenizer for metabolite extraction from animal tissue. We have been using it for a couple of years with no issue. It's a very powerful device that was able to crush any tissue sample that I have tried so far. It has a great deal of customization option to accommodate any type of sample as well."

Rating: 4.3
Application Area: Analyze proteins in cell culture

"We are very happy with the equipment, we lyse cells, we lyse microbes, both to extract proteins and DNA to perform western blot, or sequencing. The lysis is very fast, and either protein or DNA is extracted with high quality. The results are reproducible."
