Suitable for animal tissues, insects, and leaf tissue, our 1.7 mm Zirconium Beads are a good choice for applications requiring grinding media denser than silica, less expensive than stainless steel and inert in most solutions.
Acid Washed Zirconium Beads are ready-to-use, having been treated with acidified water to remove fine particles, dust, and other impurities typically found in untreated beads, and further baked to drive off organic impurities.
