Which homogenization method do you recommend for tissues stored in Allprotect Tissue Reagent?

We recommend using either the TissueRuptor or the TissueLyser for homogenization of tissues stored in Allprotect Tissue Reagent.

Since tissues incubated in Allprotect Tissue Reagent are harder than fresh tissues, longer homogenization times might be necessary (for details, see the Allprotect Tissue Reagent Handbook).

Furthermore, we do not recommend using rotor–stator homogenizers with a metal probe (e.g., Polytron) if proteins will be purified subsequently, as the metal probe can heat the sample.
