Exclusive & Unique Features

The FastPrep-24™ 5G homogenizer offers the ultimate in speed and performance for the optimal lysis of biological samples. The homogenizer machine is a software controlled, standalone instrument, designed with a user-friendly touch screen and unique features of highest speed and power, shortest processing times, intuitive programming, fully automated protocols, and over 70 pre-programmed optimized protocols for your application needs!

Touchscreen Display: The heartbeat of the FastPrep-24™ 5G is the touch screen display with microprocessor control. The display is a large, 7" diagonal HD monitor that is activated by a touch of the finger. The microprocessor controls the Graphical User Interface allowing the end-user to easily navigate through a choice of MP Bio Recommended Programs, User-defined Saved Programs, or User-defined Custom Programs.

High Power: Increased power, and the unique, optimized motion lyses samples by multidirectional, simultaneous impaction with lysing matrix particles. The FastPrep-24™ 5G provides quick, efficient and highly reproducible homogenization, getting your DNA, RNA and proteins into the protective buffer faster, resulting in higher quality and yields!

USB Port: The USB port allows users to upgrade software as they become available easily by simply connecting to a laptop or PC. A custom FastPrep App will upload new software versions quickly to the instrument. The App also has gives the user the option to download assay history from the 5G's memory and dump to the attached computer in the form of a CSV file. This feature is of critical importance in lab settings were run verification/ documentation is necessary.

Interchangeable Adapters - Flexible, Scalable & Efficient


High Throughput

Large Samples

All Metal

FastPrep® Adapters are ergonomically designed to ensure easy loading and secure homogenization. All adapters can be conveniently used as tube racks for sample storage at -20° C or -80° C and stand stable on the benchtop. The FastPrep-24™ 5G is the only available homogenizer with 11 interchangeable adapters which allows a unique versatility in sample number, size and temperature control.

Lysing Bead Matrice Tubes - Accurate, Efficient & Effective

FastPrep® Lysing Matrix make difficult-to-lyse samples easy. No matter how tough or resistant your samples are our bead beating tubes will effectively disrupt cell walls, providing the highest yields of nucleic acids and proteins in a matter of seconds. Lysing Matrix tubes from MP Biomedicals are highly reproducible with no cross-contamination. All Lysing Matrix tubes are standard sizes and fit just about any homogenizer on the market. We offer a wide variety of lysing beads and matrices to fit all sample types and applications. Tubes are available in 2m, 4.5ml, 15ml or 50ml. All Lysing Matrix tubes are certified RNase and DNase free.
