During operation, the suspended material is drawn into the core of the homogenizer by a rotor turning at 30,000 rpm. The material is repeatedly cycled through six narrow slits in the stator where it is rapidly sheared and disintegrated by high frequency mechanical action. Complete homogenization of tissues (muscle, liver, breast tissue, etc.) is usually achieved in ten to thirty seconds. Samples can be processed in test tubes kept cold during treatment by immersion in an ice bath. Easy to clean. The all stainless steel rotor and stator are removable for easy cleanup and are autoclavable to prevent cross-contamination..
