Tissue can be homogenized in conventional ground-glass tissue grinders in conjunction with centrifugation. The method may be of special value for separating soluble from insoluble material during homogenization of tissue. As yet only yeast cells and spores of slime mold have been homogenized, but the method may be useful for many tissues.
