Effectively working together, the FastPrep instruments, Lysing Matrix tubes and purification kits give you exactly what you are looking for – higher yields, higher quality, and extremely consistent results, with greater ease and efficiency. A proven platform with 18,000+ publications worldwide.

FastPrep Homogenizers and Lysis system

MP Bio offers a complete range of bead beating, cell lysis and tissue homogenization solutions to suit your sample preparation needs.


Utilizing bead-beating technology, the FastPrep system provides complete lysis of virtually any sample type and is suitable in a variety of applications from soil analysis to forensics. Mechanical tissue homogenization with the FastPrep system enables the isolation of DNA, RNA, proteins, and other small molecules while eliminating the need for chemicals or enzymes, which can inhibit downstream processes.

FastPrep-24 5G

A versatile sample disruption instrument designed to quickly and efficiently homogenize, grind, or lyse biological samples. A completely self-contained system, the FastPrep-24 5G eliminates the risk of cross-contamination and time-consuming clean-up associated with manual lysis methods. Samples are added to individual lysing matrix tubes and placed into sample holder adapters within the instrument. The unique, optimized motion of the FastPrep-24 5G shakes the samples in a tridimensional motion resulting in the collision of the sample material with the lysing matrix particles.


Intuitive software makes programming the FastPrep-24 5G fast and simple. The programmable touchscreen display allows for the use of pre-determined or custom homogenization speeds and duration times with a finger touch. Increased power features result in faster processing times and complete lysis of even the toughest samples.
