ICL’s agate mortars and pestles are the ideal tools for grinding a matrix of a solid sample with KBr powder in sample preparation for making a transparent pellet free from spurious absorption peaks. Pure agate is non-absorbing in an infrared spectrophotometer.

Mortar and pestle sets are available in custom sizes ranging from 25mm to 200mm diameter as well as standard 35mm, 50mm, 65mm, and 95mm diameters.
