Cryogenic Grinding Mill

Cryogenic Grinding Mill
The Cryogenic Grinding Mill chills and pulverize samples to liquid nitrogen temperatures. The sample vial (0.5 - 4ml capacity) is immersed in liquid nitrogen throughout the grinding cycle. The sample is stabilized at cryogenic temperatures and its key characteristics preserved. 50ml sample capacity vials are available for use with the larger cryogenic mill. Other features provide for speed control (2 - 30 impacts/second) and programmable grinding duration (0.1 - 100 minutes).

The Standard Cryogenic Mill offers a touch-screen interface, a removable control panel and on-board self diagnostics. It is self-contained with a liquid nitrogen tub, insulated case, digital speed control, programmable timer and grinding vial set which includes 4 transparent polycarbonate cylinders (4ml capacity), 2 stainless steel end caps, one stainless steel impactor, an extractor/vial opener and vial rack. The mill measures 12" x 12.5" x 9" and weighs 12lbs. Stainless steel cylinders are optional.

The Expanded Cryogenic Mill is also self-contained with a liquid nitrogen tub, liquid nitrogen level sensor, insulated case, digital speed control, programmable timer and grinding vial set which includes 4 transparent polycarbonate cylinders (50ml capacity), 2 stainless steel end caps, one stainless steel impactor, an extractor/vial opener and vial rack. The mill measures 15.25" x 22" x 18.25" and weighs 53lbs. A multi-vial adapter is optional when multi-vial grinding is preferred. The adapter will accommodate 4 transparent polycarbonate cylinders.

115V, 230V and CE models are available. Please specify and inquire for current pricing.

The Cryogenic Grinding Mill maintains a vital role for biological discovery, pharmaceutical analysis, drug testing, medical research, forensic science and many other analytical investigations. Cryogenic grinding prepares any biological material for nucleic acid extraction without damaging the RNA or DNA. Skeletal material including human bones and teeth can be ground cryogenically and DNA extracted from the powder, whether the remains are recent or very old. Plant and animal tissue of all types is easily ground and the resultant sample material can be subjected to classical methods of RNA extraction and analysis. The complex molecules present in drugs such as isomers and their metabolites are critical to both pharmaceutical researchers and crime labs. Among endless possibilities in the medical field, many cases have pulverized fresh bone and used the growth matter to stimulate the formation of bone around prosthetic implants.
