Mixer Mill 500 vario

The new Mixer Mill MM 500 vario is a versatile bench-top unit which provides ultimate performance with maximum flexibility for your sample preparation process. It is used for dry, wet and cryogenic grinding of small sample amounts with high throughput. The MM 500 vario can be equipped with screw-top grinding jars from 1.5 mL to 50 mL. Available materials include hardened steel, stainless steel, tungsten carbide, agate, zirconium oxide, PTFE.

For biological applications such as homogenization of plant materials, tissues or for cell disruption via bead beating, the MM 500 vario can be equipped with different adapters for single-use vials from 0.2 – 5 mL.
