zirconium oxide beads Product Description

0.1mm 50mm Yttria Stabilized ZrO2 zirconium oxide zirconia ceramic

Bead beating is quickly becoming the preferred process used to break up (lyse) samples in order to release the DNA, RNA and proteins contained within cells.

Samples are placed in tubes with the appropriate grinding beads and subjected to high energy mixing.

The beads impact the sample, eventually breaking it down on the cellular level releasing subcellular contents.

A variety of prefilled tubes are available for homogenizing samples including those with stainless steel, glass and Triple-Pure™ zirconium beads.

All three bead types are acid washed and processed to remove nucleases and proteases.

The Triple-Pure bead tubes undergo special handling during filling and are quality tested to ensure the elimination of DNase, RNase, protease, and nucleic acids.

When samples are used for molecular biology applications, the high purity of the Triple-Pure beads is preferred.

While glass (silica), zirconium and stainless steel beads are all effective at disrupting cells and tissues.

The added density of zirconium and stainless steel beads helps to yield better-homogenized samples.

“YSZ” beads can be had a excellent wear resistance according to “High” density and hardness both.

Also, YSZ beads has ;

* Narrow beads size distribution and gives best grinding efficiency

* Suitable for grinding highly viscous materials / slurry

* Very high wear resistance reduce product contamination

* Best suited for Verticle and Horizontal sand mills, beads mills, basket mills

These performances could be helped to improve not only your efficiency of Grinding / Dispering process

but also could be reduced your electric consumption / production cost both.

Zirconium Oxide Beads Versatile and Cost-Effective

ALB zirconium oxide beads are our densest non-metallic beads.

Great for homogenizing medium-density tissues, lysing cultured cells with tough outer walls, and powdering hair. RNase-free or non-sterile.
