I've used these extensively for homogenizing embryonic mouse tissues. The
hand-held, battery-operated motor has a good deal of power, altho you need
to keep a good supply of batteries on hand. The VWR cat # is 95050-99
for the pestles. They're autoclavable or disposable. Either way, a case
goes a long way!
