The FRENCH Press, manufactured by Thermo Electron, is the primary sample preparation tool in protein studies, extraction of nucleic acids and cell disruption of various prokaryotic and eurkaryotic cells, among others. The press provides a rapid and effective mechanism for gentle disruption of cell membranes and walls. This pressure-induced process results in more uniform and complete disruption than possible with other mechanical or ultrasonic methods. The FRENCH Press is capable of exerting of up to 40,000 psi of pressure resulting in excellent performance.

The Motor Driven Laboratory Press is easy to operate and offers the advantages of dual-range, single control pressure selection. This provides a regulated working pressure throughout the entire operating stroke, resulting in uniform and complete disruption. Fine control of the internal cell pressure expands the range of the system for use in a variety of different applications.
