Efficiency on every sample:

  • Up to 10,000 rpm to process and standardize any sample preparation in seconds. Even the hardest samples such as hair, teeth and bones can be fully ground in a short period of time.

Easy handling:

  • The innovative and patented automatic tube locking system allows for easy handling of the Precellys Evolution Touch without advanced training

Best life time:

  • The high quality manufacturing of the Precellys Evolution Touch drastically reduces the need for maintenance and additional expenditure over the years – The Precellys Evolution Touch is made in France

Adapted to any type of sample:

  • The high flexibility of the Precellys Evolution Touch, which is capable of handling four sizes of tube (0.5, 2, 7, 15 and 50 mL), makes it the perfect tool when processing samples of different sizes, weight or volume.

Protection for thermo-sensitive molecules:

  • The Precellys Evolution Touch is compatible with the Cryolys Evolution cooling unit. This combination allows users to protect sensitive molecules when processing samples.


Precellys technology presents two main features:

1- The 8-figure 3D-motion (multi-directional) movement of the tubes. The same high level of energy given to the beads inside each tube ensures equal homogenization efficiency for all processed samples (up to 24 at once). Thanks to this complex movement, the Precellys Evolution Touch can disrupt any type of sample (even the hardest) in seconds with perfect reproducibility while limiting heat generation.
2- The patented locking vacuum system of the tubes during the process. The Press’n block system saves time and energy. It makes it easier to handle equipment and secures the tubes before the grinding process.

Precellys® Evolution Touch, a versatile tissue homogenizer

The technology behind the Precellys® Evolution Touch tissue homogenizer from Bertin health & life sciences is based on over 15 years of expertise in sample preparation. It can be used to homogenize any biological sample, whether animal, human, or plant, irrespective of whether the tissue is hard or soft. Based on the multidirectional movement of the beads in the tubes, 3D bead-beating homogenization is the most efficient and reproducible method in comparison to classical ones (mortar & pestle, sonication, blenders, high-pressure homogenizers). The speed can be set to up to 10,000 rotations per minute.

Precellys® Evolution Touch allows you to use six different tube volumes (from 0.3 to 50mL) and prepare between 1 and 96 tubes at the same time. In areas as varied as pharmacology, medical research, forensic medicine, the environment, microbiology, or agronomy, Precellys® Evolution Touch saves you precious time in your routine and R&D projects requiring tissue homogenization or cell disruption. This preliminary processing is crucial for proteins, drugs, metabolites, RNA or DNA extraction.

Rating: 5.0
Application Area: Tissue sample processing for metabolism studies

"Our lab purchased this homogenizer for metabolite extraction from animal tissue. We have been using it for a couple of years with no issue. It's a very powerful device that was able to crush any tissue sample that I have tried so far. It has a great deal of customization option to accommodate any type of sample as well."

"Precellys is really easy to use, without the need for special tools since you can fix the sample tubes on the equipment without screwing them.
I like the power of this instrument, it's the only optimized way to disrupt our sample using the 6500 rpm speed.
Precellys is the ideal beat beater to deal with various type of samples with its wide power range, from moderate to very strong."
