The Bioruptor Pico Ultrasonicator is an all-in-one shearing system optimized for shearing volumes as small as 5 µL up to 2 mL. This wide range enables a variety of applications such as DNA shearing for next-generation-sequencing library preparation, RNA shearing, and chromatin shearing. Shearing is a critical step in next-generation-sequencing library preparation, chromatin immunoprecipitation, and ChIP-seq.

Key Product Features:

• All-in-one solution with advanced timing control and regulated cooling system

• Versatile—shears sample sizes from 5 µL–2 mL

Advantages of the CM1950

• UVC disinfection minimizes risk of contamination by infectious material.

• AgProtect, an antimicrobial, nanosilver coating on all outside surfaces also minimizes contamination risk.

• Optional section waste removal system provides a safer environment using a concealed primary filter system for solid waste and a bacterial (HEPA) filter for air.

• Optional vacuum assisted sectioning makes sectioning easier.
