Avestin - High Pressure Homogenisers | Liposome Extruders
As the exclusive distributor for Avestin Inc. across the UK & Ireland, Biopharma Group offers industry leading homogenisation and extrusion technologies, associated with superior results and a robust, user-friendly manner of operation.
These versatile systems are applied across numerous industries, for applications including:
- Cell Disruption/ Lysis
- Particle Size Reduction
With its unique, dynamic homogenising valve design, from the benchtop (1-5L/hr) to production (500/1000L/hr) scale, comes a smooth homogenisation process with reliability.
Standard operation between 500 – 30,000 psi homogenising pressure; manual or automated.
GMP suitable, the range has 21 CFR Part 11 compliant systems available if required, and an array of documentation/certification options including FAT, SAT, IQ/OQ, surface roughness testing, material traceability and more.
High Pressure Homogeniser Systems
With world-leading scalability, and a versatility in suitable processing volumes, Avestin can be your perfect homogenisation partner, from R&D/benchtop through to scale up operations up to 1000L/hr:
Below are some of the systems available, though please feel free to contact us to discover more, or to find out which would be the best system for your projects.
Biopharma Group is pleased to exclusively supply products from Avestin Inc. throughout the UK & Ireland.
Latest Additions to the Avestin Inc. Range
The new Automatic Homogenising Pressure Control accessory allows the user to input the desired homogenising pressure onto a touchscreen HMI.
The homogeniser would then ramp up to and maintain that pressure, autonomously.
- Improved accuracy in pressure identification via digital display and line graph
- Mirrors GMP-type processing
- Reduced homogenising pressure variability
- More alignment with larger scale processing, to assist with scale-up/scale-down
- Retrofittable onto existing benchtop units.
Integrated into the machine cabinets of new D20 and larger systems. For existing units and new C3 and C5 units, it exists as a standalone unit.
The Filter/Extruder Accessory for Avestin Homogenisers offers a scale up to the Avestin LiposoFast Series (see below) of liposome extruders.
- Diameters available: 47 mm, 90 mm, 142 mm
- Pressure: up to 8,000 psi (550 bar), depending on specifications
The combination of homogenisation and extrusion often reduces the required number of passes to achieve the desired particle size and size distribution.
