We want to purchase a bead mill for tissue disruption/homogenization,

Actually I have just done quite a bit of research on bead mills:
The actual manufacturer of the mixer mill 300 is Retsch Inc.
An alternate vendor is Glen Mills Inc.	www.glenmills.com 
Glen Mills has a huge variety of grinding type machines - check out
their website.  

I chose the MM300 because it has the capability to adapt 2 x 96 well
plates, 0.2ml tubes, 1.5-2.0ml tubes, as well as grinding jars up to

Qiagen calls the same machine the 'Tissue Lyser"
Spex Certiprep has another type of mill called SPEX Certiprep6750 and
the freezer/mill 6850 which uses magnets	www.spexcsp.com 

Hope this helps
