LV1 Low Volume Microfluidizer® Processor

The LV1 Microfluidizer® Processor is a low volume high shear homogeniser developed as a result of customer demand to bring Microfluidizer quality nanotechnology processing to the millilitre scale. Like all Microfluidizer® processors, the LV1 delivers industry-leading particle size reductions, provides the narrowest particle size distributions and better recovery in fewer, shorter passes.

Key Features:

  • 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

As the exclusive distributor for the UK and Ireland, Analytik is proud to provide the full Microfluidizer® range from Microfluidics. Through Analytik, you’ll have access to our team of experts to help develop your application and get the most out of your investment.

The LV1 Microfluidizer® Processor is a high shear homogeniser 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:

The LV1 is an excellent choice for academic and commercial customers who work with high-value samples, especially when product recovery is of paramount concern. This processor is equally adept at handling oil-in-water emulsions and solids-in-liquid suspensions.

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.

“We are indebted to the excellent technical support provided by Analytik, which has enabled us to fully exploit the high-pressure LV-1 Microfluidizer for the production of well-defined nanoemulsions. We will be seeking their support and advice in the future as we seek to extend our studies to include water-in-oil nanoemulsions”.
