The homogenizer is laboratory equipment that is used for the homogenization of a variety of materials, such as tissues, plants, food, soil, and many others.
Being homogenization the mixing process that seeks that the processed substance has the same properties in its entirety, it can be said that the homogenizer is the instrument created to make it possible. In biology and biochemistry, homogenizers are used for the disintegration of tissues and for the rupture of cells, with the least possible damage to the plasma membrane. The homogenizer process will depend on the samples that the researcher is going to mix and how he will use it.
Biomolecular extraction is an essential step for sample preparation, which is carried out in techniques such as ELISA, PAGE, Western BLOT, mass spectrometry or protein purification.
