The gentleMACS™ Dissociator is a benchtop instrument for the semi-automated dissociation of tissues into single-cell suspensions or thorough homogenates. A single sample or two samples in parallel can be processed. Two types of unique gentleMACS Tubes used with the instrument enable the time-saving and easy dissociation or homogenization of tissues in a closed system. The instrument offers optimized gentleMACS Programs for a variety of specific applications. Special protocols have been developed for various tissues. The standardized tissue dissociation or homogenization procedures make for reliable and reproducible results. For higher throughput and even more flexibility see also the gentleMACS Octo Dissociator.

The gentleMACS™ Octo Dissociator is a benchtop instrument for the semi-automated and standardized tissue dissociation or homogenization of up to eight samples.Single-cell suspensions or thorough homogenates from virtually any tissues are easily and reproducibly obtained using the unique C Tubes or M Tubes. These single-use gentleMACS Tubes allow sample preparation in a closed and sterile system, providing a high level of user safety and minimize cross-contamination. In addition to the numerous optimized and ready-to-use gentleMACS Programs, the gentleMACS Octo Dissociator allows the user to develop individualized programs for almost any biological material. The instrument allows independent use of all eight tube positions, different programs can be selected and run individually.For fully automated tissue dissociation browse the gentleMACS Octo Dissociator with Heaters.
