gentleMACS™ Octo Dissociator

Overview

The gentleMACS™ Octo Dissociator is a benchtop instrument for the semi-automated and standardized tissue dissociation or homogenization of up to eight samples.
Single-cell suspensions or thorough homogenates from virtually any tissues are easily and reproducibly obtained using the unique C Tubes or M Tubes. These single-use gentleMACS Tubes allow sample preparation in a closed and sterile system, providing a high level of user safety and minimize cross-contamination.
In addition to the numerous optimized and ready-to-use gentleMACS Programs, the gentleMACS Octo Dissociator allows the user to develop individualized programs for almost any biological material. The instrument allows independent use of all eight tube positions, different programs can be selected and run individually.
For fully automated tissue dissociation browse the gentleMACS Octo Dissociator with Heaters.

Details

Applications

Optimized, pre-set gentleMACS Octo Dissociator 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, including:
  • total RNA or mRNA isolation from fresh or frozen samples
  • protein extraction
  • determination of bacterial or viral load
  • mitochondria isolation
Additionally, user-defined programs can be used to dissociate or homogenize all other types of sample material.
