Silicon-Carbide Sharp Particles

Price: $

Please ensure you've selected the correct catalog number.

Product Description

Preliminary information suggests that plant and animal tissue can be disrupted more quickly with sharp-edged material rather than smooth beads.  Particles are sold in one pound bottles.

Cat. No. 11079101sc        0.1mm dia
Cat. No. 11079110sc        1.0mm dia
Cat. No. 11079140sc        4.0mm dia

The sharp, hard edges of these irregular particles impart a knife-like cutting action during high-energy shaking in Mini-Beadbeater vials.  They may abrade and micro-chop tough tissue faster than beads.  For softer tissues beads are preferred.

* Wash with lab detergent before first use.

NOTE: Silicon-Carbide Sharp Particles should not be used with the BeadBeater 1107900.
