Turning a sample into a suspension—the essence of homogenizing—occurs in a wide range of laboratory applications. In life science and clinical research, scientists often homogenize tissue samples for various analytical studies.
Top 5 Signs That You Should Service or Replace Your Homogenizer Generator Probes
The most important component of homogenizing is your generator probe—the item that actually goes into your sample.
- Your sample is getting hot and the generator probe or motor unit is hot to the touch.
- There is black residue in your sample.
- You aren’t getting the same homogenizing results you used to.
- Some of the inner components, such as PTFE bearings, look worn or overly discolored.
- Your generator probe is seizing up.
If you have never taken apart your generator probe for a good cleaning, then chances are that some maintenance is required.
