The conical surface allows initial size reduction followed by passage through the cylindrical section for the final homogenization step. Grinding efficiency is improved, and less time is required as compared to the Tenbroeck and Potter-Elvehjem designs. When the pestle is “bottomed” within the mortar, the clearance is a uniform .004 in. to .006 in. (0.1 to 0.15mm).

  • Homogenizes connective tissue including heart, muscle, skin and lung as well as plant tissue
  • Made from low-extractable borosilicate glass that conforms to ASTM Type I, Class A and USP Type I requirements
  • Interchangeable components take the hassle out of matching parts
  • Autoclavable
