Product Description

LV1 Low Volume

The LV1 Microfluidizer® high pressure homogeniser was developed as a result of customer demand to bring Microfluidizer quality nanotechnology processing to the milliliter scale with applications in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, chemical, nutraceutical/food, cosmetic and energy industries:

  • Academic and commercial sectors
  • Drug discovery, Adme Tox, basic research and development
  • Proteomics and genomics

Microfluidizer processors offer exclusive benefits due to the fixed-geometry interaction chamber and constant pressure pumping system. The unique technology enables customers to achieve smaller sample sizes than other methods with more uniform distribution and scaleup guaranteed.

With the LV1, researchers with limited resources and high value samples are able to enhance their wide variety of applications and materials with benefits only a microfluidizer processor can provide.

Key Features and Benefits:

  • Small sample size requirements (1-6 ml)
  • 50% smaller particle size
  • Scaleup guaranteed
  • Narrowest particle size distribution
  • Near total sample recovery
  • Improved protein yield
  • Low or no heating with effective cooling
  • Short process cycles
  • Media and chemical-free processing
  • Easy to clean up
  • No disassembly required
  • Quiet operation
