gentleMACS Octo Dissociator with Heaters (130-096-427)

The gentleMACS Octo with heaters is the only dissociator that Miltenyi rates for use with their adult brain dissociation kit. We had no problem at all setting up and running the programs, and were able to create seemingly viable single-cell suspensions for our downstream applications.
