The tissueTUBE is a unique biomedical device constructed of strong, flexible plastic. When used in combination with an AFA tube, tissueTUBE devices facilitate the closed vessel cryofracture of a biological tissue sample in a convenient, controlled, and easy-to-use manner. The film used in the tissueTUBE is made of Kapton, a “space-age” polymer originally developed to withstand the extreme temperature fluxes experienced in orbit. The tissueTUBE allows you to extract target molecules in three easy steps: Snap (flash-freeze), Crack (dry pulverize), Pop (AFA-enabled cavitation to actively extract).
Tissue device consumables and accessories required to process low and hard tissue masses in the range of 1-10 mg using the t-PREP Extraction System.
