What size bead should I use for tougher samples with the TissueLyser LT?
FAQ ID -2554

In general, disruption works very well using one stainless steel bead with a diameter of 5 mm. However, for tougher samples we recommend the use of two 7mm stainless steel beads to optimize the effectiveness of disruption.
