gentleMACS™ Octo Dissociator


The gentleMACS™ Octo Dissociator with Heaters is a benchtop instrument for the fully automated and standardized tissue dissociation or homogenization of up to eight samples.
Equipped with eight individual heating units and numerous optimized and ready-to-use gentleMACS Programs the gentleMACS Octo Dissociator with Heaters offers a fully automated workflow for tissue dissociation. In addition the instrument allows the user to create user-defined programs for almost any biological material. All eight positions can be operated independently. 
Single-cell suspensions or thorough homogenates are easily and reproducibly obtained using the unique C Tubes or M Tubes. These single-use gentleMACS Tubes allow sample preparation in a closed and sterile system, providing a high level of user safety and minimize cross-contamination.
