Lysing Matrix Z
Tubes contain 2.0 mm diameter Yttria-Stabilized Zirconium Oxide beads which have high density and hardness. Ideal to break tough cell walls, while its smooth surface minimizes shearing. Use for animal\plant tissue, stems, roots/seeds, insects, bacteria, yeast/fungal spores, and Algae. Alternative to Matrix A as lower shear rates minimize degradation of RNA and Proteins.
