Multi-Gen 7XL & Homogenizer Applications: The better alternative to homogenizer plastic probes or plastic tips

Multi-Gen 7XL Stainless Steel Probes

You may be concerned about cross contamination between samples while homogenizing, but remember…plastic doesn’t cut itMulti-Gen 7XL Stainless Steel Probes are the better alternative to plastic disposable probes or tips.

Our advantages over plastic disposable probes:

Higher sample breakdown yields

Multi-Gen probes provide higher sample breakdown yields even for homogenization of difficult samples, including the toughest of tissues over plastic versions. The clearance between the stainless steel rotor-stator is extremely tight and along with its open-slotted teeth, lead to higher shear rates along with faster overall cutting ability compared to the plastic versions. This provides better performance in results in less time.

Extended usage

Multi-Gen Probes were quality tested and run for 11 hours and showed no signs of wear because of its quality design and superior material. Plastic versions have limited usage, depending on brand some will even only allow 1-2 uses.  Plastic probes are commonly recommended as single use. In some cases, an overused plastic disposable probe or tough sample can shatter or splitter it during homogenizing.

Chemical compatibility

Multi-Gen Probes material components of 316 Stainless Steel and PTFE provides a greater reagent compatibility compared to plastic models, which have significant limitations.  Cleaning Multi-Gen probes is easier because of this construction and probes can be continually sterilized by any method, including flaming & autoclaving. Plastic versions can only be cleaned with certain methods, and depending on brand, maybe autoclaved 1-2 times no matter the sample. 

Environmentally & budget conscious 

Multi-Gen Probes are environmentally and budget friendly compared to continually discarding plastic versions.  Avoid making your homogenizing a consumable.  Multi-Gen Probes have the ability to be continually used, unlike a plastic probe that will need to be purchased again and again.
