Convenient, cost-effective and ready-to-use, our 24 Well Polyethylene Vial Sets with Unlined Caps are suitable for high throughput dry grinding of resilient tissue (e.g., most small seeds, animal tissue).
NOTE: Polyethylene Vials are relatively pliable compared to Polycarbonate Vials and are not as effective when used on large, hard samples (e.g., corn kernels). Polycarbonate Vials are also preferred for cryogenic grinding.
Each 4 ml Polyethylene Vial has a working volume of 4 ml and is suitable for homogenizing up to 200 mg of sample.
Each 24 Well Polyethylene Vial Set contains:
24 4 ml Polyethylene Vials
24 Unlined Polypropylene Screw Caps
24 pre-cleaned 3/8" 440C stainless steel grinding balls
1 foam holder
1 polyethylene storage box
To use, simply remove the lid from the storage box, remove the vial caps, add sample to the vials, replace the caps, and place the entire storage box onto the homogenizer platform for ambient processing.
Sold in cases of ten vial sets (equal to 240 pre-loaded vials). Replacement vials may be purchased separately.
