- Listed bead sizes are median (average) values. Because beads are sorted by sieves, bead size varies between +/-10% of a listed value.
- With either stainless steel or chrome steel beads, common polypropylene microvials will break if ‘dry’ grinding or cryo-grinding is attempted in Biospec MiniBeadbeaters. In this case, the Biospec 2 ml stainless steel microvials with silicone rubber caps or Biospec 2 ml XXTuff polypropylene screw cap microvials are recommended.
