LM20 Digital Microfluidizer®

The LM20 Microfluidizer® is a digitally controlled high shear homogeniser for small volumes. It maintains identical sample processing conditions, producing the desired results, including: uniform particle and droplet size reduction (often submicron), deagglomeration and high-yield cell disruption.

Key features:

  • Achieve unmatched size reduction/disruption performance at lower process pressure
  • Limit sample temperature rise during processing
  • Higher product yields after sterile filtration with tighter particle size distribution
  • Save on development time in pilot/production with linear volumetric scale-up
  • Enhanced repeatability with easy-to-use digital pressure control
  • Compact design to fit in a fume hood
  • Ensure dependable process performance over time with maintenance reminder and operator alerts
  • Adapt to future experimentation possibilities with field upgradable firmware

Description

The LM20 Microfluidizer is digitally controlled high pressure homogeniser for small volumes. It maintains identical sample processing conditions, producing the desired results, including: uniform particle and droplet size reduction (often submicron), deagglomeration and high-yield cell disruption.

The LM20 contains an intensifier pump designed to supply the desired pressure at a constant rate to the product stream. As the pump travels through its pressure stroke, it drives the product at constant pressure through precisely defined fixed-geometry microchannels within the interaction chamber.

As a result, the product stream accelerates to high velocities, creating shear rates within the product stream that are orders of magnitude greater than any other conventional means. All of the product experiences identical processing conditions, producing the desired results, including: uniform particle and droplet size reduction (often submicron), deagglomeration and high-yield cell disruption.
