Unmatched Power, Consistency, and Versatility.

Consistently Disrupt with the Industry's Only Inclined Carriage.

Featuring our distinctive and user-centric Inclined Carriage, Elite is engineered to ensure your samples undergo thorough and consistent disruption, while reducing sample variability.

Elite's unique design optimizes the movement of beads within sample tubes, promoting efficient bead-to-sample interactions, resulting in faster and more thorough sample disruption.

Your samples spend less time undergoing mechanical processing, generating less heat that can be detrimental to samples.

With ELITE, you get:

  • Preservation of Sample Integrity: Minimized heat generation ensures sensitive biomolecules remain intact and functional.
  • Consistent Results: Efficient sample disruption without the adverse effects of heating ensures reproducible results across batches.
  • Optimized Lab Workflows: Reduced risk of heat-related sample alterations means fewer re-runs and more reliable data in downstream applications.

Increased Yields, Undeniable Integrity

Low mRNA yields can result in incomplete data sets, leading to inaccurate conclusions and repeat experiments. This can drain your resources, time, and potentially precious samples, while delaying processing and research outcomes.
Elite's Inclined Carriage ensures thorough and consistent sample disruption, often leading to higher mRNA yields critical to the accuracy and reliability of outcomes.
In this example, data indicates a four-fold increase in mRNA yield when using the Bead Ruptor Elite. The mRNA yields ranged from 26 to 99 μg, compared to the 9 - 30 μg achieved through dounce homogenization.

Integrity and Purity

Even with enhanced disruption efficiency, Elite maintains the integrity and purity of the mRNA samples.

As shown, the 260/280 nm ratios demonstrate that mRNA purity remains comparable between Elite bead milling and traditional homogenization techniques, ensuring improved efficiency does not compromise sample quality.

Have Extra Heat-Sensitive Applications?
You can further protect sample integrity with the BR Cryo Cooling Unit — a seamless addition to ElITE that maintains samples from 4°C to ambient, helping you safeguard heat-sensitive molecules like RNA and proteins. Our innovative cryo system circulates chilled air (-100°C to -50°C) to dissipate heat, ensuring constant, controlled temperatures for optimal processing.


Silent, Relentless G-Forces and Performance.

Many labs struggle with processing tough samples due to traditional methods or inefficient bead mills, resulting in inconsistent sample processing and lost time.

Designed specifically to handle almost anything you throw at it, Elite's drive mechanism delivers unmatched processing range leveraging tube acceleration, displacement, and motor force to deliver the highest range of impact forces available.

Our drive train isn't just powerful – it’s maintenance-free, designed for continuous operation and nearly silent performance.

“Powerful homogenization in a small footprint. A must-have for every laboratory.” 

Application Area: Trace residue analysis in crop and environmental samples.

"Our Bead Ruptor has been an enormous time saver. Previously sample homogenization of multiple samples could be a bottleneck. Especially if multiple chemists needed to use our traditional homogenizers, which are expensive and take up a lot of bench space. The Bead Ruptor makes quick work of multiple samples at once. 

…The methods using our traditional homogenizers usually take 5-15 minutes of homogenization time. Compare this with 30 seconds to a minute on the Bead Ruptor due to its powerful motor

Added benefits are there's no need to clean probes and no fear of cross-contamination or loss of residues. It has really revolutionized how we approach method development too. "

“It is easier to use, safer (no solvent splashes), and quieter (no hearing protection required)”

Application Area: Homogenize animal tissues in organic solvents.

"We purchased this product to replace a traditional shearing homogenizer. It is easier to use, safer (no solvent splashes), and quieter (no hearing protection required). It is programmable, ensuring consistent handling of all samples. It processes up to 24 samples simultaneously. It is very powerful.

We process most of our samples for two to three cycles at 10 to 15 seconds per cycle. Customer support from Omni is very good. We were able to demo the unit before purchasing to make sure it would work with all of our applications. Our Omni rep was in constant communication with us during the demo and after our purchase to make sure all went smoothly.

If you regularly homogenize a large number of samples, I would recommend trying out this product. It has greatly decreased the time and effort our lab spends on sample preparation."
