LV1 Low Volume Microfluidizer® Homogenizer

High Shear Fluid Processor for the Smallest Samples

Microfluidics developed the LV1 high shear benchtop homogenizer to bring Microfluidizer® quality nanotechnology processing to the milliliter scale for applications in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, chemical, nutraceutical/food, cosmetic and energy industries. The LV1 is capable of handling samples as small as 1 ml — samples smaller than many other liquid processors can handle.

LV1 High Shear Fluid Processing

The LV1 is an excellent choice for academic and commercial customers who work with high-value samples, especially when product recovery is of paramount concern. This processor is equally adept at handling oil-in-water emulsions and solids-in-liquid suspensions.

Like all our Microfluidizer® processors, the LV1 delivers industry-leading particle size reductions — up to 50% smaller than those achieved by competitors’ machines. Our products also provide the narrowest particle size distributions, better recovery and fewer, shorter passes. 

HOW IT WORKS

All Microfluidizer® processors provide exclusive benefits due to their fixed-geometry interaction chamber and constant pressure pumping system. The technology allows users to achieve smaller sample sizes — with more uniform distribution and scaleup guaranteed — than can be obtained with other methods.
