gentleMACS Dissociators and Tubes

  • Save time with fully automated tissue dissociation or homogenization
  • Benefit from reliable and standardized procedures for highly reproducible results
  • Gain flexibility using pre-set or user-defined programs for virtually any tissue
The generation of single-cell suspensions and superior homogenates from tissue samples requires gentle yet effective conditions. To ensure the best possible conditions for tissue dissociation, Miltenyi Biotec has developed the gentleMACS Dissociators and their unique gentleMACS C and M Tubes for cellular and molecular downstream analyses. Together with our Tissue Dissociation Kits you will get high recovery rates of viable and functional cells with only little and predictable effects on epitope preservation.

See for yourself how it works: Together with the easy-to-use MACS® Tissue Dissociation Kits, the combined mechanical dissociation and enzymatic treatment yields single-cell suspensions with excellent viability rates. 

gentleMACS Dissociators

The gentleMACS Dissociator provides pre-set profiles for specific tissue types and allows semi-automated workflows for a lower sample thoughput. The gentleMACS Octo Dissociator enables high sample throughput and the dissociation of virtually any tissue type by using pre-set or user-defined programs. Finally, the gentleMACS Octo Dissociator with Heaters is equipped with individual heating units and offers a fully automated sample dissociation for any tissue type by using established or customized profiles. All three instruments are operated in combination with our gentleMACS Tubes providing a sterile sample handling in a closed system.  

gentleMACS Tubes

The uniquely designed gentleMACS Tubes contain build-in rotors for sample dissociation in a closed system. Two types of gentleMACS Tubes are used with all three gentleMACS Dissociators. With excellent results and the safety of the user in mind, the blue C Tubes enable fast and highly efficient tissue dissociation for viable single-cell suspensions, while the orange M Tubes enable thorough homogenization of tissues and cells for molecular applications.
