Latest innovation in shearing - Bioruptor Pico

All-in-one shearing system that can simultaneously sonicate 6-16 samples.

The Bioruptor® Pico is a breakthrough all-in-one shearing system that can simultaneously sonicate 6-16 samples.* The Pico utilizes an advanced water bath sonication system that is optimized for gentle, yet powerful homogeneous shearing micro-volumes of 5 μl to larger samples of up to 2 ml. The unique cooling system includes a water cooler and single cycle valve to provide high precision temperature control that result in highest quality samples.

Ideal for:

  • DNA shearing for Next-Generation-Sequencing (5 - 100 µl)
  • Chromatin shearing (10 µl - 2 ml)
  • RNA shearing (200 bp – 1 kb)
  • Protein extraction from tissues and cells
  • FFPE DNA extraction
