The Retsch MM400 Mixer Mill, popular for a range of applications from mixing and homogenising to cell disruption for DNA/RNA been given a fresh new design and additional features.
The multipurpose ball mill has three grinding modes – dry, wet, and cryogenic – of small volumes up to 2 x 20 ml. It mixes and homogenises powders and suspensions with a frequency of 30 Hz within seconds.
A compact benchtop unit, MM400 is suitable for classic homogenisation processes, as well as for biological cell disruption for DNA/RNA and protein extraction. Long processing times of up to 99 hours make it appropriate for research applications, for example in mechanochemistry or for biological cell disruption. It can mix powdered sample and binder in plastic vessels prior to pelletising for applications such as XRF analysis.
Instrument flexibility is further boosted thanks to:
- Transparent jars allow for in-situ Raman Spectroscopy
- Extraction of pesticides (QuEChERS) and herbal ingredients
- Calibration of time and frequency for applications in the pharmaceutical industry.
