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.

Efficiency on every sample:

  • Up to 10,000 rpm to process and standardize any sample preparation in seconds. Even the hardest samples such as hair, teeth and bones can be fully ground in a short period of 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.

Precellys Evolution is the universal tissue homogenizer combining high flexibility and high efficiency for either routine or R&D projects.

Specially designed for L3 laboratories, the Precellys Evolution homogenizer is based on 10 years of sample preparation expertise. It offers optimal robustness and safety. The Precellys Evolution possesses a unique automatic tube locking system – a real push-and-play system.

The Precellys Evolution homogenizer can process five different sizes of tubes (0.3mL in well-plate format, 0.5, 2, 7 and 15mL) and up to 24 tubes simultaneously. The comprehensive range of 30+ lysing kits makes it suitable for any type of sample preparation. Its flexibility and high efficiency give users the ability to grind, homogenize and lyse any type of soft or hard sample from animal, human, plant or microorganism sources in seconds.

Combined to Cryolys Evolution, the only patented integrated cooling unit, Precellys Evolution offers a complete control of the temperature during samples grinding to prevent DNA, RNA & Protein degradation of thermosensitive molecules.

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."
