What is the typical amount of tissue used for disruption with the TissueLyser LT?
The amount of starting material is dependent on the sample material that should be disrupted. For plant tissues up to 100 mg, and for human or animal tissues 25 to 30 mg, can be disrupted with the TissueLyser LT. When disrupting yeast up to 5 x 10^7 cells, and when disrupting bacteria up to 7.5 x 10^8 cells, can be used. Using more than the recommended amount of starting material will significantly decrease disruption efficiency.
