Tapered Tissue Grinders
These Tapered Tissue Grinders have an improved design which incorporates a longer tapered surface on both the mortar and pestle. The conical surface allows initial size reduction followed by passage through the cylindrical section for the final homogenization step. Grinding efficiency is improved, compared to the Tenbroeck and Potter-Elvehjem designs. When the pestle is bottomed within the mortar, the clearance is a uniform 0.004" to 0.006" (0.1 to 0.15mm). Available with either glass or Teflon® pestle. Both feature ground glass tube interiors.more
