Hi there,

        I was wondering if anybody could help, I am trying to grind up
samples such as corn etc. to the consistency of flour. But a pestle and
mortar introduces to much contamination and needs to be sterilised after
every use. I saw somewhere a homogeniser that uses glass beads in an
eppendorf tube and grinds up samples to a fine consistency. If anybody
else has any information about this I would be grateful to hear from
Thanks, Alisha
