You can mill the freeze dried leaf tissue and store it in falcon tubes in
the fridge, ready to roll for extraction.  Also the little disposable
micropestles and a handheld drill work well for grinding small amounts of
tissue (in extraction buffer) in microcentrifudge tubes.

O.K.  Here's a question for all you plant people

I would like to find some type of system to replace grinding tissue in a
mortar & pestle.  I use fresh and dried tissues (usually leaf) for various
molecular analyses and would like to "keep things in the microtube".

Please send recommendations with retailer info.   THANKS  A  MILLION !!!
