Developed as a quick, clean, and efficient alternative to syringe and needle homogenization techniques—the Chromatrap® Homogenizer Spin Column offers labs an easy-to-use downstream sample processing tool for a wide range of applications such as plasmid miniprep and midiprep and RNA extraction protocols. Good homogenization of cells and tissue lysates enables improvement in yield and quality of obtained plasmids and RNA for downstream applications.

Contained within a spin column, the unique proprietary bio-shredding Vyon® polymer contained within Chromatrap® Homogenizer Spin Columns reduces lysate viscosity and captures insoluble debris by centrifugation, thereby eliminating the possibility of contamination.
