Great for homogenous powdering of tissue samples whilst frozen.
Application Area: Homogenising mouse tissue samples - dry or lysis
"We have been using the Retsch MixerMill 400 to dry grind our mouse tissue samples while keeping them cold. This machine has allowed us to finely grind the tissue to a powder while keeping the samples frozen and then aliquot the homogenous powder for multiple downstream uses. The racks can be prechilled in a liquid nitrogen bath, removed for grinding and then straight back onto liquid nitrogen to keep the samples frozen. We can do 20 x 2mL tubes at one time substantially saving us time compared to hand grinding one by one. Additionally, we have used this for several lysis protocols including lysing in phenol for RNA extraction and into lysis buffers for protein analysis."
