Retsch's New CryoMill; Safe and Efficient Grinding with Liquid Nitrogen



RETSCH's new CryoMill is designed specifically for cryogenic grinding with its integrated liquid nitrogen cooling system. The grinding chamber is continuously cooled before, during and in between grinding cycles at a constant -196 °C. Unlike other cryogenic mills where the user is fully exposed to a bath of LN2, the CryoMill is completely enclosed, ensuring the safety of the user. With its Autofill system, liquid nitrogen is drawn into the CryoMill quickly and safely, at no risk to the user.

With its high frequency up to 25 Hz, the CryoMill offers a grind down to 5 µm, much faster than competing mills! The CryoMill contains one grinding station with the option of a 25 ml, 35 ml or 50 ml jar for a variety of sample sizes. An adapter which holds four 5 ml jars is also available. Adapters to hold eppendorf vials will be available later in 2009, allowing for very small and high-throughput samples. Ideal for samples such as: plastics, temperature-sensitive materials, cells and tissue, hair, chemicals, bones and more!
