Freezer/Mill® Cryogenic Grinders

Laboratory Equipment for Sample Preparation & Handling

Programmable cryogenic mill specifically designed for grinding and pulverizing tough or temperature sensitive samples

  • Key Features

    • High resolution display user-friendly applications and view training videos and manuals
    • Access run history uploadable to a thumb drive via USB
    • Cryogenic Grinding Applications DNA/RNA or protein extraction from tough tissue samples and yeast cultures,THC extraction, forensic testing, drug testing, RoHS/WEEE and volatiles extraction, contamination testing in pharmaceutical products and packaging following USP method 232.
    • Typical samples animal tissue, plastic and polymers, yeast cultures, pharmaceuticals, food products, electronic components, textiles, hair, teeth, bones, plant tissue, packaging, patches (e.g. nicotene).

Samples are placed in a sealed cryogenic grinding vial in the Freezer/Mill®, then immersed in liquid nitrogen (LN). The samples are cooled to cryogenic temperatures then pulverized by magnetically shuttling a steel impactor back and forth against two stationary end plugs.

Each Freezer/Mill® cryogenic grinder has an insulated nitrogen tub equipped with an LN sensor. A touch screen control panel controls the grinding cycles, grinding time, impact rate as well as pre-cooling and cooling times.

Since the vial is closed, the cryogenic grinder maintains integrity of its contents, hazardous or critical samples are easily controlled, cleanup is simplified and cross-sample contamination is eliminated.
