The LV1 benchtop was developed as a result of customer demand to bring Microfluidizer quality nanotechnology processing to the milliliter scale with applications in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, chemical, nutraceutical/food, cosmetic and energy industries:

  • Academic and commercial sectors
  • Drug discovery, Adme Tox, basic research and development
  • Proteomics and genomics applications

Microfluidizer processors offer exclusive benefits due to the fixed-geometry interaction chamber and constant pressure pumping system. The unique technology enables customers to achieve smaller sample sizes than other methods with more uniform distribution and scaleup guaranteed.

With the LV1, researchers with limited resources and high value samples are able to enhance their wide variety of applications and materials with benefits only a Microfluidizer processor can provide:

  • Stable nanoemulsions
  • Highest protein recovery (typically >99% for E. coli after one pass)
  • Challenging cell disruption (e.g. yeast, insect cells)
  • Improved bioavailability
  • Targeted delivery
  • Nanoencapsulation (e.g. polymers, liposomes )
  • Deagglomeration
