gentleMACS Octo Dissociator with Heaters

The gentleMACS™ Octo Dissociator with Heaters is a benchtop instrument for the fully automated and standardized tissue dissociation or homogenization of up to eight samples.

Equipped with eight individual heating units and numerous optimized and ready-to-use gentleMACS Programs the gentleMACS Octo Dissociator with Heaters offers a fully automated workflow for tissue dissociation. In addition the instrument allows the user to create user-defined programs for almost any biological material. All eight positions can be operated independently.

Single-cell suspensions or thorough homogenates are easily and reproducibly obtained using the unique C Tubes or M Tubes. These single-use gentleMACS Tubes allow sample preparation in a closed and sterile system, providing a high level of user safety and minimize cross-contamination.

The gentleMACS Octo Dissociator is free to use and can be booked through iLab. However, the columns for the instrument need to be purchased by the user. Contact Miltenyi sales rep ( for quotes, sample preparation protocols, and free trial columns.
