Working with infectious agents, especially viruses, can be challenging due to the hazardous nature of the sample material and the risk of cross-contamination. Our gentleMACS™ Portfolio can support your virus research by providing a closed and sterile system to reduce handling hazards.
The gentleMACS Dissociators are a family of benchtop instruments for the automated and standardized dissociation or homogenization of virtually any tissue.
Viable single-cell suspensions are efficiently obtained by using our unique C Tubes in combination with our tissue-specific enzyme kits, whereas thorough homogenates are easily obtained by using the unique M Tubes. After processing, samples can be used for any cellular and molecular downstream analyses.
Virus research with the gentleMACS Portfolio can benefit from:
