gentleMACS™ Dissociator


The gentleMACS™ Dissociator is a benchtop instrument for the semi-automated dissociation of tissues into single-cell suspensions or thorough homogenates. A single sample or two samples in parallel can be processed. Two types of unique gentleMACS Tubes used with the instrument enable the time-saving and easy dissociation or homogenization of tissues in a closed system. The instrument offers optimized gentleMACS Programs for a variety of specific applications. Special protocols have been developed for various tissues. The standardized tissue dissociation or homogenization procedures make for reliable and reproducible results.
For higher throughput and even more flexibility see also the gentleMACS Octo Dissociator. For fully automated tissue dissociation browse the gentleMACS Octo Dissociator with Heaters.



Optimized, pre-set gentleMACS Programs have been developed for easy dissociation of tissues into single-cell suspensions, including:
  • mouse or human tumor
  • mouse or rat neonatal heart
  • neural tissue
  • mouse spleen, lung, lamina propria, muscle, epidermis, or liver
  • mouse or human skin
  • and more
Also, programs have been developed for the homogenization of tissues, for:
  • total RNA or mRNA isolation from fresh or frozen samples
  • protein extraction
  • determination of bacterial or viral load
  • mitochondria isolation
