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 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.
