Microbiology - Bertin Instruments


Microorganism studies are critical as they are used for bio-production and health research. They are difficult to lyse due to their thick cell wall, which makes nucleic acid extraction difficult.

A major application for the Precellys is microbiology studies. The Precellys can be used for any research concerning bacteria (gram + or -), viruses, yeast, cells, spores etc.

Microorganisms are difficult to lyse due to their extremely small size and their thick cell wall which makes nucleic acid extraction complicated. Precellys equipment and adapted lysing kits containing small (< 1mm) glass beads to offer a real, rapid and effective alternative to conventional methods, such as chemical lysis or manual grinding. As tissue homogenization using Precellys solutions were initially designed for BSE diagnosis, it was mandatory to be able to work in BSL3 laboratories. This unique feature allows the Precellys to be used for infective and virulent microorganism studies. Today, Precellys 24 or Precellys Evolution can be used in BSL3 & BSL4 laboratories, working on HIV or Ebola.
