How It Works: A Multi-Prep Laboratory Homogenizing System

Problem: There are a few important concerns an end-user encounters when homogenizing. Complete sample homogenization is the goal for each homogenizing process; however, many end-users are faced with the difficulty of achieving consistent sample breakdown of multiple samples in a timely manner coupled with a large concern of cross-contamination. Even further, when you have a lot of samples to process per day, it becomes a very time-consuming and labor intensive task as well as tedious nature to stop and clean a generator probe between each sample process. Typical disposable plastic generator probes are not the answer either because of their inaccurate homogenizing results, and most labs can’t accommodate or afford large automated systems to address their concerns.

Solution: The Multi-Prep Laboratory Homogenizing System is one product that can simplify the labor and time of the typical homogenization process and to make it easier for the end-user.

This particular system can process up to six samples at once in a quiet, compact, and timesaving unit while providing accurate processing speed during the homogenization cycle. With the Multi-Prep’s small footprint similar to a microcentrifuge, it takes up little counter space and fits in most flow cabinets and fume hoods.

The system allows for precision sample breakdown and repeatability with limited concern of variations in sample size or viscosity, which frees up a large amount of valuable lab time. A typical run time of six samples is done in seconds and with a maximum ability to process six samples per cycle can result in 300 homogenized samples per hour, which can provide significantly higher laboratory productivity.
