Homogenization is a common and necessary procedure in a range of industries and laboratories, as it allows manufacturers and scientists to more easily combine samples.
Homogenization in the lab is the process by which the components of a substance are broken up into tiny particles equal in size and structure, before being thoroughly mixed back together, creating a homogenous mixture.
This is typically done to substances that are mutually insoluble and immiscible, making them equal in size and, hence, miscible. It differs from emulsification in that emulsifying substances only requires that they are mixed into one another. However, when performing homogenization, emulsification is usually performed first.
In some cases, homogenization is also referred to as micronization or cell fractionation. Although liquids are the most common, scientists also homogenize tissue, food, plant, and soil samples. For example, specific devices, called tissue homogenizers, are made for tasks involving the breaking down of tissue structure to form an emulsion of tissue solids, proteins, and fluid.
Molecular biology, cell biology, and biochemistry laboratories utilize homogenization for research and production, while the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries implement cell disruption and cell lysis, the process of breaking down a cell’s membrane through viral, enzymic, or osmotic mechanisms, in a variety of ways. While similar to homogenization, these two methods are used in situations where the nucleus should be kept intact.
In molecular biology, PCR is just one application that benefits from homogenization, where sample preparation is vital to achieving accurate results.
Homogenization is a vital part of today’s scientific world, and laboratory homogenizers are best suited for the job. These machines are an important part of any modern laboratory, and aid in everything from simple mixing tasks to the development of cost effective, life-saving medicines and alternative biofuels.
Laboratory homogenizers come in a variety of styles that operate using different methods of force. These methods offer a myriad of applications, including DNA/RNA extraction, particle size reduction, and the preparation of suspensions, emulsions, and dispersions.
The mortar and pestle is perhaps the original homogenization method used, having been invented thousands of years ago.
Lab Mixer & Homogenizer Methods, Types & Prices
It’s important to understand the requirements of your lab or company to ensure that you buy the correct type of device. This includes homogenization method and components used to break apart substances.
Take into consideration the type of method best suited for your needs, as well as the size. Do you need a small handheld homogenizer, a benchtop homogenizer, or something bigger, fit for industrial and large-scale needs?
Let’s review some common methods.
Agitation, Impact, Stirring, and Shearing
High-Shear Mixer Leases to Fit Every Need
High quality automated machinery makes any preparative task involving homogenizing, mixing, shaking, or vortexing easier. This includes lab homogenizers, mixers, shakers, stirrers, and more.
Whether you’re small or large scale laboratory, homogenizer equipment provides modern solutions to homogenization. It is a vital part of any laboratory concerned with throughput, reproducibility, and quality control.
If budget is an issue, Excedr’s leasing program can provide a solution. We offer leasing options for a wide range of homogenization and mixing equipment for laboratory use through our lease program. Our program also includes preventative maintenance and repair coverage, so any unforeseen downtime you experience will be minimized.
Reach out to us today and skip the large upfront costs associated with purchasing by leasing your laboratory equipment instead. If you have an instrument in mind, simply request a lease estimate to start the approval process.
This off-balance sheet financing structure provides three options at the end of the term. The lessee has the option to return the equipment to the lessor, renew at a discounted rate, or purchase the instrument for the fair market value. Monthly payments are also 100% tax deductible which yields additional monetary savings.
If you recently bought equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your device and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments. This also frees up money in your budget rather than tying it down to a fixed asset.
