Product of Interest

PRO Scientific Multi Prep Rapid Homogenizer System

The Multi-Prep, Rapid Homogenizing System can homogenize up to 6 samples at once in a quiet, compact, and time-saving unit while providing accurate processing speed during the homogenization cycle. Up to 6 samples can be homogenized at one time in mere seconds giving you the maximum ability to homogenize up to 300 samples per hour. By freeing up a large amount of valuable lab time, homogenizing with the Multi-Prep results in significantly higher laboratory productivity. With its automated processes, the Multi-Prep can produce more consistent homogenizing results compared to traditional non-automated and standard manual homogenizing methods. Homogenizer protocols vary within any lab and the Multi-Prep’s programmability function can store up to 10 different homogenizing programs in memory.

Julabo Presto

An entirely new generation of highly dynamic temperature control systems by JULABO. The new PRESTO® systems are designed for precise temperature control as well as rapid temperature changes, making them ideal for reactor vessels, material stress tests, or temperature simulations. These instruments cover a working temperature of -80 to +250 °C with high cooling and heating capacity. Highly efficient components give these instruments the ability to compensate for exothermic and endothermic reactions with extraordinary speed. Permanent internal monitoring and self-lubricating pumps contribute to the new PRESTO®’s long service life.

Questions from the Vault

We have so many questions filling our forums that sometimes questions can be missed and go without answers. Can you help us provide answers for these users with unanswered questions?

Panasonic MDF-U76VC - Heat Output
What is the heat output of each of these units? We're trying to estimate how much air conditioning is necessary to maintain a room of 12 freezers between 68-70 degrees F. Advise this member.

SHEL LAB GI2 - Setpoint
I'm having trouble trying to maintain the setpoint on model GI2. Advise this member.

CEM Corporation MARS 5 - Lost all programs
The system was left off for about a month. Upon powering up this morning, we found that all of our programs were gone. The system worked well the last time we used it. We are going to re-enter the programs, but we're concerned that there may be an underlying problem that may cause this to happen again. Advise this member.
