In the biotech sector, a tissue homogenizer is a common instrument for preparing tissue samples for future analysis, investigation, or development. Cells are lysed, or broken apart, throughout the procedure to liberate their contents. In the lab, homogenization is a typical first step to dissecting tissues into their component parts. Different methods may be employed depending on the required constituent parts. The tissue is frequently blended first for more thorough homogenization, and a disruptor is then used to further break down the tissue. Tissue homogenizers can perform systematic homogenization of biological tissue to extract different analytes (proteins, DNA, RNA, small molecules, etc.).
