Megaruptor 2 sonication device

Megaruptor 2 sonication device

A simple, automated and highly reproducible hydrodynamic shearing device for the production of large DNA fragments ranging from 3 kbp to 75 kbp.
  • Precise: Tight fragment size distribution.
  • Consistent: Robust and consistent shearing. 
  • Minimal clogging: Due to use of hydropores and hydrodynamic shearing.
  • Optimised: For DNA fragments from 3 kbp to 75 kbp in length.

Product information

The Megaruptor® provides researchers with a simple, automated and highly reproducible device for the fragmentation of DNA from 3 kbp to 75 kbp.* Long reads, and therefore long DNA fragment inputs, are key for de novo sequencing, detection of structural variants and single molecule sequencing. Megaruptor shearing performance is independent of the source, concentration, temperature or salt content of a DNA sample. With user-friendly software, process two samples sequentially without additional user input and without cross-contamination. The operator sets the desired parameters, and the automated Megaruptor takes care of the rest. The hydropore consumables eliminate clogging issues, prevent cross-contamination and ensure the tightest size distribution.
