The Avestin EmulsiFlex Series
The Emulsiflex range of high pressure homogenisers from Avestin are ideal for a wide range of applications, commonly used within the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and fine chemicals industries. These include cell lysis, particle size reduction, nanoparticles, emulsions (emulsification), and liposome preparation. Additionally, it offers reliable, consistent processing at adjustable pressures of up to 45,000 psi, Both air-powered and electrically-powered systems are available, and options include filter/extruder attachments, temperature control mechanisms and automatic pressure control.
The unique Emulsiflex design ensures that there are no ‘O’-rings or gaskets in the entire path of the product. This means less risk of contamination, easier cleaning and no leakage.
Please note: Custom designed units can offer pressures up to 45,000 psi thus enabling the process the toughest of samples.
Features and Options
With models that can handle sample volumes of 3 mL (B15) up to 2000 L (C500/ C1000), and flow rates of 15 mL batch through to 1000 L per hour, the Avestin Emulsiflex Range offered by Biopharma throughout the UK and Ireland, could be the ideal solution to your homogenisation needs.
The Avestin LiposoFast Series
The preparation of liposomes via liposome extrusion is becoming an ever-popular procedure, largely due to their ability to encapsulate both hydrophilic and hydrophobic compounds. This has become a significant advancement in drug and supplement delivery research, as ingested liposomal products often show significant bioavailability increases.
The Avestin LiposoFast series consists of available hand-held and benchtop extruder systems, capable of producing unilamellar liposomes as small as 50nm, with a narrow size distribution.
Temperature control is also available, for heat sensitive products, to maximize yield of viable liposomes.
