Using the Shredder-Tube Cap Tool, a serrated Shredder-Ram is inserted into one of the Shredder-Tubes, pressing the sample between the serratged surface of the Shredder-Ram and the lysis disk of the tube. Ice-cold mitochondrial medium (200-700 µl MiR06 or MiR06Cr) is then added to the opposite Cap side of the tube, which is closed by a Shredder-Screw Cap, again using the Shredder-Tube Cap Tool. The filled Shredder-Tube is placed into the pre-cooled Shredder Base, with the Ram side facing downwards, and the SG3 driver is placed onto the Cap. The force setting lever is placed into the position (1-low, 2-medium), and shredding for 20-30 s is sufficient for several different tissues. The processed homogenate is sampled from the Shredder-Tube by unscrewing the Shredder-Screw Cap using the Shredder-Tube Cap Tool and removing the cap, for transfer of the sample into the O2k-Chamber.
Advantages of the PBI-Shredder
- Low shear mechanical device for gentle, rapid and safe disruption of tissues;
- Three position lever for setting reproducible force to the sample during the shredding process;
- Gentle enough for isolating intact, functional mitochondria;
- Powerful enough to rapidly break apart difficult samples;
- Standardized preparations of high quality;
- Enables reproducible results;
- Easy handling, especially for beginners;
- Processing containers:
- > Standard tubes for ambient pressure processing
- > Closed containers help to ensure safety throughout the entire sample preparation process;
- > Excellent for collection, storage, transport and processing
- High quality of functional mitochondria is obtained from skeletal muscel and kidney as evaluated by high resolution respirometry:
Traditional methods for homogenization
- Homogenizer-based protocols that require extensive operator experience (highly skilled personnel) to obtain reproducible high-quality preparations.
- These methods limit dissemination, impede scale-up, and contribute to difficulities in reproducing experimental results over time and across laboratories.
- During manual homogenization it is difficult to know when sufficient tissue disruption has occured - overhomogenization!
- The current protocols rely on Dounce, Potter-Elvehjem, and rotor/stator shearing homogenization:

The PBI-Shredder HRR-Set is an auxiliary HRR-Tool providing a standardized approach to prepare homogenates of various tissues with high reproducibility of mitochondrial yield and mitochondrial function. In this manual for applications with high-resolution respirometry (HRR), we refer to the PBI User Manual with safety information, product use limitations and warranty information, and the Product Specification Sheet by Pressure BioSciences Inc (PBI).
Application studies with the PBI-Shredder
