A great alternative to costly stainless steel and brittle silica, OPS Diagnostics' 3.0 mm Acid Washed Zirconium Beads are are chemically-resistant to organics and suitable for homogenizing larger tissue and plant leaf samples.
Beads are washed with acidified water to remove contaminants typically found in untreated beads (e.g., dust, microbes, hair), and further baked to remove any organic impurities.
Pre-Filled Tubes are a convenient solution for labs seeking time savings by no longer requiring researchers to weigh, fill and QC individual tubes. They are available in 2 mL skirted (i.e., self-standing) or unskirted polypropylene tubes to ensure compatibility with most tube homogenizers. Clear screw caps with O-rings included.
