Microfluidics designs, develops and builds to the highest standard, anticipating that you will push our equipment to its limits, whilst maintaining consistent and high quality product output.
Our Microfluidizer® Processors are the gold standard in the industry for applications that require high shear. The fluids that are processed inside the Interaction Chambers™ can travel at velocities of up to 500 m/s, faster than the speed of sound (343 m/s). In addition to the high shear forces, impact forces from collisions with the micro channel walls and with the fluid itself are the other primary forces that assist in particle/globule size reduction. A change of velocity in magnitude or direction exposes the fluid to a high shear field. High turbulence inside the microliter volumes is also responsible for mixing on the nano scale.
Used for emulsions (oil in water), liposomes, and polymer encapsulations. Microfluidics Y type chambers are available with a microchannel range of 75 to 125 μm with varying shear rates optimized for each application. Please speak to our team to identify which chamber is best- suited to your application.
Used for emulsions (water in oil), cell disruption, deagglomeration, particle size reduction, and dispersions. Microfluidics Z type chambers are available with a microchannel range of 87 to 1100 μm with varying shear rates optimized for each application. Please speak to our team to identify which chamber is best-suited to your application.
