Many laboratories prepare different types of samples at the same time and would like one standard, unique kit for all sample types. The aim of this study was to evaluate the grinding efficiency of the GK60 kit on various kinds of samples (animal tissues, plants and seeds) and to compare this result with a competitor matrix. These experiments have been performed on liver, leaves and rice.
The Precellys® lysing kit GK60 grinds soft and hard samples with and without buffer. All samples were effectively pulverized or homogenized, and the grinding efficiency was better than Competitor M for rice.
