The BioHomogenizer is a rotor-stator type tissue homogenizer designed to rapidly homogenize, disperse, and emulsify biological samples in aqueous media from 1 to 1000 ml. The BioHomogenizer includes both the motor and probe. The BioHomogenizer is available in a 1-200ml samples version (complete with 1.4 cm probe) or a 100-2000ml samples version (complete with 2.5 cm probe).
The powerful 10,000 rpm motor is totally sealed and can be hand-held or stand mounted. During operation, the suspended material is repeatedly cycled through 12 narrow slits in the stator by the action of a high speed rotor. The material is rapidly sheared and disintegrated by the high frequency mechanical action. Complete homogenization of soft tissue (muscle, liver, brain, etc.) is usually achieved in one minute or less. Samples may be processed in a test tube chilled during treatment by immersion in an ice bath. Other applications include dispersion and emulsification of dairy and cosmetic products.
The BioHomogenizer comes complete. The price includes both motor and a probe of your choice.
