High Pressure Homogenizers

High-pressure homogenizers consist of a tank to which high pressure is applied in order to force the liquid sample contained therein through a valve or membrane with very narrow slits. This act causes high shear, a large pressure drop, and cavitation, all of which act to homogenize the sample. High-pressure homogenizers are most commonly used for creating emulsions and for cell lysis when relatively large volumes are being processed.
