The TissueGrinder is a stainless steel Potter-Elvehjem style mortar and pestle.
It is designed to gently homogenize fresh, soft tissue in an excess of an appropriate solvent. While most tissue grinders are made of glass or plastic, this all stainless-steel mortar and pestle (Potter-Elvehjem style) tissue grinder provides superior temperature control and greater plunger forces while being far more durable and without risk of shattering glass. Less effort is required to achieve complete homogenization because of the precise 0.1 mm clearance between the smooth walls of the pestle and tube.
The Tissue Grinder has a working volume of 5 - 15 ml and comes with a removable, broad base for convenient upright standing during use and easy cleaning afterwards.
21 cm height x 5 cm diameter, 0.5 kg weight. Made of type 316 stainless-steel.
