Thanks for the reply  -- we have looked at the Kontes grinders and we use 
ones like it for other  techniques.  I called Kontes and they do not have 
the ones I need.   The beauty of the grinders I discribed in my message 
is that the pestle can be suspended over the morter part by placing a 
small Allen wrench or rod through the handle and centrifuging the whole 
unit, all the sample is recovered with minimum dilution.

Thanks again,

Michael Bausher
