Chrome steel lysis beads are great for very tough tissues like dry plant materials and hair.  These have a density of 7.9g/cc.

  • Listed bead sizes are median (average) values.  Because beads are sorted by sieves, bead size varies between +/-10% of a listed value.
  • With either stainless steel or chrome steel beads, common 2 ml polypropylene microvials will break if "dry grinding" or "cryo-grinding" is attempted using our high-energy Mini-Beadbeaters.  In those cases, we recommend using our 2 ml stainless steel microvials with silicone rubber caps or our 2 ml XXTuff polypropylene screw cap microvials.
