The Thermo Scientific Pierce Tissue Strainer fits standard 15 mL conical tubes for quick separation of cells or cell lysate from tissue debris through a 250 µM mesh filter after mechanical disruption using gravity or gentle centrifugation.
Features of the Pierce Tissue Strainer:
• Convenient—remove tissue debris from tissue homogenate within minutes using gravity filtration or gentle centrifugation • Compatible—unique design fits into standard 15 mL conical tubes • Versatile—remove debris from a variety of tissues types, including liver, heart, brain, kidney, lung and spleen
The easy-to-use Pierce Tissue Strainers are made of strong nylon and enable rapid isolation cells or uniform protein extracts from up to 2.5 mL of tissue sample per load. The tissue strainers fit into standard 15 mL conical tubes, making the processing and recovery of samples simple and reliable.
Applications: • Use with the Subcellular Protein Fractionation Kit for Tissues and other protein extraction reagent protocols that start with tissue samples. • Improve uniformity of tissue homogenates to facilitate sample handling. • Protect downstream instrumentation and devices by removing tissue clumps and debris that may foul injection ports and columns.
