The Barocycler NEP3229 is an affordable, high pressure laboratory instrument designed to fit on a bench top, inside a biological safety cabinet, or on the shelf of a cold room. The Barocycler NEP3229 is capable of processing up to three samples simultaneously using specially designed, single-use containers called PULSE Tubes. The Barocycler NEP3229 has an external chiller hook-up, automatic fill and dispense valves, and an integrated micro-processor with an easy-to-use keypad. The new bench top Barocycler NEP3229 fills an important and growing need in genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics for the rapid, robust, versatile, reproducible, and quantitative extraction of nucleic acids, proteins, and small molecules from a wide variety of organisms including, viruses, bacteria, plant and animal cells and tissues.
