Lab Mill Grinder Options: Good Sample Preparation Affects Analysis

It has long been known that good analytical results begin with good sample preparation. Preparing your sample correctly from the start will lead to efficiencies and repeatability downstream.

McCrone Microscopes & Accessories (MMA) has been providing the McCrone XRD Mill to laboratories around the world since the 1970s. A little over 10 years ago MMA partnered with Verder Scientific and their milling and sieving division, Retsch, to offer a wider variety of mills, grinders, and crushers. We’re proud to offer the following products for your milling and sample preparation needs:

  • The McCrone XRD Mill is the optimal choice when preparing samples for XRD analysis. The unique grinding action of the 48 cylindrical grinding elements rapidly reduces samples to submicrometer sizes required for quantitative XRD analysis.

  • Retsch Planetary Ball Mills, available in five models, are used whenever the highest degree of fineness is required. These mills meet all of the technical requirements for colloidal grinding and have the energy input necessary for mechanical alloying processes. These are ideal for plastics, metallurgy, geology and pharmaceuticals.
