This image from 1966, depicted an oblique view of a type of tissue disintegrator-homogenizer known as a Mickle machine®, which was manufactured by Mickle laboratories. This machine was used in a laboratory setting to disrupt cells, tissues, microscopic organisms, or concentrated pellets in a solution, in order to further analyze the ultrastructural components of these, and other macroscopic materials. Also referred to as a Mickle shaker-machine, you can see in this view, a test tube containing a white emulsion, was enclosed in the shaker arm, which had been wrapped in a plastic wrap in order to contain any contaminants to the confines of the machine during the vigorous shaking process.
