Silicon-Carbide Sharp Particles

availability: In Stock

  • Catalog Number


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

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.  These beads are dusty.  Wash with lab detergent before first use.

We also offer PRELOADED beads in 2ml screw cap vials.  There are too many possible combinations of bead size, bead composition and bead load to consider stocking all prefilled vials, so we do this on a custom basis.  Let us know what you need at and we will give you a price quote.

NOTE: While Silicon-Carbide Sharp Particles are routinely used with any of our MiniBeadbeater models, they should not be used with the BeadBeater, model 1107900.
