Hand held attrition mill

Nail Homgenizer

The Nail Homogenizer is a hand-held attrition mill that easily pulverizes small nail samples for more reliable dermatological testing. When treated with 10% KOH, the micronized samples spread out rapidly and evenly beneath a cover slip, making study easier and more accurate. The homogeneous sample derived from using the Nail Homogenizer increases the chances of discovering fungal hyphae in a specimen. Additionally, using pulverized samples increases the possibility of culture isolation by permitting greater numbers of potentially viable fungal cells to come into direct fontact with the isolation medium.
Pulverizing in the Nail Homogenizer is a simple task. Laboratory safety is improved since no sharp-edged tools are required. The technician places a specimen in the mill cavity, presses the two mill halves together, and rotates the halves in opposite directions several times. This process is successful with other tough, resilient materials in addition to nail clippings.
Cutting head inserts are replaceable, and the entire unit is autoclavable in preparation for the next sample.
