Tissue Tearor

The Tissue-Tearor is a rotor/stator type tissue homogenizer which can rapidly homogenize, disrupt, and emulsify samples in 0.5 – 1000 ml of liquid.  Complete homogenization of tissues (muscle, liver, breast tissue, etc.) is usually achieved in ten to thirty seconds. Little, if any, heat is produced during the process.

If you need a 230 volt unit, please select models that end in EUR.  When ordering select one of our four different probe sizes – 04, 07, XL, and 14. Unlike most competitive Brands of rotor-stator homogenizer, THE TISSUE-TEAROR COMES COMPLETE WITH BOTH THE HIGH-SPEED MOTOR AND ONE STAINLESS STEEL PROBE OF YOUR CHOICE.  See chart below for probe selection guidance. Additional probes are available.  All are interchangeable with the TT motor unit.  A cord-less variety of the TissueTearor is also available with model numbers ending in CL.

The Tissue-Tearor comes complete with a high speed, variable speed electric motor, one probe of your choice  and a plastic storage stand. All probes are interchangeable with the Tissue-Tearor motor.
