A homogenizer is a very important equipment among the components of a laboratory, because it allows to carry out the homogenization process of different types of materials; such as tissues, food, plants and other biological or chemical elements.
You must bear in mind that homogenization is a very common step in the preparation of biological samples in laboratories, such as before the analysis of nucleic acids and proteins, or the study of cells, metabolism, bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses as well. as in other scientific purposes.
Currently on the market there are many models of laboratory homogenizers, so you must be clear about the specific function that each of these equipment performs in order to choose the one that best suits your needs.
A homogenizer is a very important device among the components of a laboratory, since it allows the homogenization of different types of materials; such as tissues, food, plants and other biological or chemical elements.
Homogenization is a very common step in the preparation of biological samples prior to the analysis of nucleic acids and proteins, or the study of cells, metabolism, pathogens, and many other targets. There are many models of laboratory homogenizers on the market. Below we will show you different models, tips and information so that your homogenizer is the most suitable for your processes and you feel satisfied with your purchase.
Depending on the manufacturing technique, we can show you three main types of laboratory homogenizers, Fluidized bed homogenizer...
Ultrasonic homogenizers are powerful tools to mix and homogenize solid-liquid and liquid-liquid suspensions. Ultrasonic homogenization is a mechanical process to reduce particles in a liquid so that they become uniformly small and evenly distributed. Hielscher offers powerful ultrasonic homogenizers for application in lab and production scale.
In biology and biochemistry, homogenizers are used for the disintegration of tissues and for the rupture of cells, with the least possible damage to the plasma membrane. The homogenizer process will depend on the samples that the researcher is going to mix and how he will use it. Biomolecular extraction is an essential step for sample preparation, which is carried out in techniques such as ELISA, PAGE, Western BLOT, mass spectrometry or protein purification. The process of cell disruption can occur by three mechanisms:
Shear force caused by liquids: it is the non-Newtonian behavior of fluids whose viscosity decreases under shear stress, which divides cells
Shear force caused by solids: the deformation produced will depend on the direction, direction and point of application where that force is placed.
Force caused by a gaseous cavitation mechanism: it is a hydrodynamic effect that occurs when vapor cavities are created within water
Chemical and biochemical methods: use of a hypotonic medium; Enzymatic hydrolysis: they try to disintegrate tissues and break cells
They are equipment with a system designed to achieve excellent homogenization due to a rotor with bladed edges that rotates in a stationary state at high speed, having holes through which the fluid moves. It also allows in many cases multiphase configurations of rotors and stators and special ultra-fine meshes
It has a mechanical process in which the particles are reduced in a liquid, with the aim of obtaining uniformity in their size and distribution (improving the stability of the product). This type of homogenizers are on the market for both laboratories and on an industrial scale
There are countless models, so it is normal that you do not know which laboratory equipment to buy that suits your needs. At Kalstein, we evaluate them to find what you're looking for.
The crude mixture of destroyed cells is known as the homogenate. During the centrifugation of a cell homogenate, larger particles sediment faster than small ones, which makes it possible to obtain crude organelle...
