Brassica seed harvester/crusher?

We are generating a lot of transgenic Brassica plants from which we need
to harvest the seeds, and crush them for further analyses.

I was wondering whether anybody  knows of a commercial supplier selling a
piece of machinery able to harvest and clean  seeds from individual
(transgenic) Brassica plants. Alternatively, if anybody has designed their
own, and willing to share their design, I love to hear from you as well.

In addition, I am looking for a (Brassica) seed grinder which is capable
of grinding small seed samples (10-20 seeds), dry or in a buffer,  in a
fast and consistent manner. 

Any suggestions are welcome. I will summarize the replies and post them
back to this news group.
