When it comes to lab analysis, sample preparation is key.
Converting your raw materials or samples into a form suitable for analysis may sound simple, but there is a lot of room for error along the way. What you get out of your experiment depends on the quality of what you put in. If sample preparation is inadequate, it can result in inaccurate results or loss of critical data. So, don’t let sample preparation be the bottleneck of your lab.

Homogenization and cell lysis are all about making sure your molecule of interest is released and evenly mixed. It's the process of breaking down your sample to create a uniform mixture. This helps reduce sample heterogeneity, ensuring you get consistent results from your analysis.
Milling and grinding are techniques used to reduce the particle size of your sample. This makes it easier to analyze and can improve the accuracy of your results. By breaking down larger particles into smaller ones, milling and grinding helps you get a more uniform sample for analysis.
Sometimes, you need to combine two or more samples to create a homogeneous mixture. Mixing and blending techniques are perfect for this. They help you create a consistent mixture by thoroughly combining different samples, ensuring you get reliable results from your analysis.
