Particle size reduction, also called comminution, is often a critical process step in preparing samples for further analysis.  It is a common practice across a broad spectrum of industries such as food, chemical and pharma.  Preliminary research involving comminution can be expedited with small capacity laboratory analytical mills such as CAT Scientific’s AX60 Analytical Mill…

Particle size reduction on a laboratory scale is often required to formulate samples for further analysis.  While several techniques – such as using a mortar and pestle – can accomplish this, a faster, easier and cleaner technique is coupling an analytical mill grinding chamber to a scientific homogenizer.  Admittedly the sample size is smaller than…
