Pilot scale homogenizer

29 May 2020

The Microfluidizer processor M-110EH TM uses high shear fluid processing technology to reduce the size of droplets, particles and cell lysis. It has a fixed geometry interaction chamber and a ceramic piston (zirconia), which can handle a wide variety of fluids.

Lysis is the destruction of the cell membrane and homogenization is one of the methods of preparing lysates (products of decay). The pressure applied can reach up to 30,000 psi.

A sample can be processed in a single “pass” through the chamber or continuously in several passes.
