    Precellys Evolution is the most advanced homogenizer for sample preparation

    Precellys Evolution

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

    Precellys Evolution is the universal tissue homogenizer gathering high flexibility and high efficiency for either routine or R&D projects. Especially designed for L3 laboratories, the Precellys Evolution is based on 10 years of sample preparation expertise. It offers optimal robustness and safety. The Precellys Evolution possesses the unique automatic tube locking system, a real push-and-play system.

    The Precellys Evolution homogenizer has the capability to process 5 different sizes of tubes (0.3mL in well-plate format, 0.5, 2, 7 and 15mL) and up to 24 tubes simultaneously. Its flexibility and high efficiency gives users the ability to grind, homogenize or lyse any type of soft or hard sample from animal, human, plant or microorganism in seconds.

    Genclis SAS is a CRO mainly working on food samples. In this application their aim is to extract proteins recognized by IgE antibodies from allergic patients. The challenge is to extract protein with the best quality as possible.

    The Precellys Evolution tissue homogenizer allows to extract high quality and quantity proteins from dry food samples. Moreover, the capacity to process 6 tubes of 15mL is a real advantage and allow to gain time.

    Best life time :

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

    Adaptated to any type of samples :

    • The high flexibility of the Precellys Evolution, capables to handle 4 sizes of tubes (0.5, 2, 7 and 15 mL), mades it the perfect tool when processing different type of samples in size, weight or volume.

    Protection for thermo-sensitive molecules :

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


    The Precellys technology presents two main features:

    1- The 8-figure 3D-motion (multi-directional) movement of the tubes. The same high level of energy is given to the beads inside each tubes providing the same homogenization efficiency to all the processed samples (up to 24 at once). Thanks to this complex movement, the Precellys Evolution can disrupt any type of samples (even the hardest ones) in seconds with a perfect reproducibility in limiting heat generation.


    2- The patented locking vacuum system of the tubes during the process. The Press’n block system helps the user saving time and energy. It eases the handling of the equipment and secures the tubes before the grinding process.
