Dear Yeasers,

I found this ad in the Web and it says that this company (Biospec) has 
the machine for breaking yeast cells with glass beads in up to 8 
microcentrifuge vials.  It seemed to do the same job as a conventional 
vortex does, but in much efficiently and in less minutes.  

But I really don't have any information about this machine and company.  
Does anybody have experience with this machine?  Does this machine 
generate heat which could kill proteins when you do an enzyme assay?  Are 
there other companies making similar products?  Basically what I want to 
know is what is a reliable machine do this job.  TIA.
