Tougher than silica, less expensive than stainless steel, and inert in most solutions, 100 µm Acid Washed Zirconium Beads (Zirconium Silicate) are suitable for homogenizing bacteria, including mycobacteria, and small tissues. May also be used as a sonication additive.
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.
