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.

Detailed product information

Applications

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

gentleMACS Dissociator (130-093-235)

This is basically a glorified blender that dissociates any tissue digested with collagenase, to extract infiltrating cells. It can be used for tumors, pancreases, kidneys, heart etc. Some solid tissues are difficult to dissociate by manual agitation, and this is where it comes handy. Plus, who wants to hurt their hands when you have a million tissues to process. We actually performed a yield test and found that tumors dissociated with this instrument gave 5 times higher numbers of infiltrating leukocytes than manually agitated samples.

Miltenyi Biotech's C-Tubes are designed to streamline tissue dissociation using the gentleMACS™ Dissociator, and are very helpful in doing so. By using set programs on the dissociator machine, you can select for specific cell types that you wish to isolate. I used these to dissociate tumor tissue in a cell line derivation procedure and received consistent, thoroughly positive results with my final cell lines.

gentleMACS Dissociator (130-093-235)

Our lab focused on the clonal heterogeneity in various tissues. As part of our project, need to isolate single cells from various tissues ( liver, lung, brain) from mouse and tumors. The reason we choose MACS dissociator because it has pre-programme optimized for single cell preparations - Lung, brain and tumor.

gentleMACS Dissociator (130-093-235)

Our lab digests large amounts of both human and animal tissue for single cell isolation. This machine very quickly dissociates many types of tissue that cannot digest in enzyme buffer alone. We use it for lung, spleen, intestine, and lymph nodes.
