Garnet Sharp Particles
Like Silicon Carbide sharp particles, these abrasive particles have sharp cutting edges that may accelerate lysis of plant and tough animal tissue in a MiniBeadbeater vial.
Unlike Silicon Carbide particles, Garnet particles break down to smaller size during the grinding process. They should not be used in a tissue preparation if the goal is to recover intact intracellular organelles or viable microbial cells.
Garnet sharp particles are sold in one pound bottles. Average size +/- 20%
