These polycarbonate grinding vial sets for the Talboys High Throughput Homogenizer (item # 23502) combine the benefits of the microplate format with the size of vials to provide a tool for higher throughput sample grinding. Each plastic case with foam rack holds (5) 15 mL polycarbonate vials. Each vial includes two 7/16" (1.1 cm) stainless steel grinding balls and threaded lid (your choice of lined or unlined). This item contains 10 sets of 5 vials each, so you are purchasing a total of 50 vials, each with the indicated accessories.
Grinding balls are used with deep well plates and vial sets to bead beat plant tissues, seeds and animal tissues. These grinding balls are made of 440C stainless steel which allows them to be retrieved with a magnet (see item # 23526) while making them resistant to tarnishing. The grinding balls are twice treated to remove residual oils and contaminants prior to packaging. These 7/16" (1.1 cm) stainless steel grinding balls are good for larger grinding jobs such as pooled seeds. For replacement balls see item # 23522.
