Unique and universal dispersing, stirring, homogenizing and grinding system with hermetically sealable disposable sample tubes. Protection and security for: Infectious sample materials, toxic substances, high-odor substances under defined conditions (time, energy, volume).

The sample containers (tubes) are easily attached to the drive unit. Desired speed and duration are set, then the test is started. An acoustic signal indicates completion of experiment. The tests are any time reproducible and there is no cross-contamination between the samples.
