SLS compact, fully automated Homogenizing System saves time

14 May 2009

A compact, dual processing homogenizing system which combines the functions of mechanical and ultrasonic homogenizing for faster sample preparation, is the latest addition to the range of laboratory equipment available from Scientific Laboratory Supplies.

The DPS-20 from PRO Scientific features an innovative, three-in-one design and offers users the choice of fully automated Ultrasonic Homogenizing configuration, fully automated Mechanical Homogenizing, or both. This advanced system offers users optimum control and flexibility and is therefore an ideal choice to best support a wide range of processing needs and by merging the advantages of each homogenizing method, maximum timesaving is achieved.

Mechanical or ultrasonic homogenizing can be used together, or independently of each other, resulting in faster and more efficient sample breakdown. This ensures minimal, or no heat introduced and therefore more precise particle size reduction, all completed within a noise reducing enclosure. Also, its automation capacity allows for repeat processing and consistent results, freeing-up time for other work to be completed in the laboratory.

Features include, a high-performance brushless motor which powers the mechanical homogenizer, a 130-watt ultrasonic processor which delivers constant amplitude throughout processing all housed within a sound-abating enclosure with LED interior lighting and a clear polycarbonate door providing users with a full view of the inside chamber.

The system can be used with 15ml,16ml, 19ml and 50ml tubes through its innovative carousel rack design and additional carousel racks can be purchased for quicker load time. Up to 20 samples can be processed in one run, or include two rinse positions or setup for every other position to be a rinse position. A typical run-time for 20 samples is under 10 minutes. Onboard computing enables the system to store-up to 10 different homogenizing programs in memory, or it can be used in the manual mode for individual sample processing.

The DPS-20 system is ideal for sample preparation in the pharmaceutical industry where high volume sample processing is important, also in life sciences for cells and tissue preparation, food processing, cosmetics production, industrial and environmental.
