An improvement on the traditional mortar and pestle, the CryoGrinder retains the strength and durability of porcelain while adapting to the scale of molecular biologists. The CryoGrinder was specifically designed to grind small and difficult to homogenize tissues (e.g., skin, sclera) at cryogenic temperatures. Each CryoGrinder mortar can efficiently accommodate up to 100 mg of sample, though most researchers use 10-20 mg. Pestles fit the cordless, rechargeable wrench/screwdriver to ease the grinding process.
Each CryoGrinder Kit comes with four mortars, eight pestles, and one rechargeable cordless wrench. Detailed instructions on use and product care are also included.
When used in conjunction with the CryoCooler™, the CryoGrinder is an effective means of homogenizing multiple samples.
