WESTWOOD, Mass., Feb. 11, 2014 — Microfluidics International Corp. has released the LM10 Microfluidizer, a digitally controlled lab unit for small-sample materials processing. The device converts pressure energy into shear and impact forces, attaining targeted size reduction at lower peak pressure, which results in less sample temperature rise during processing. Each interaction chamber’s microchannel architecture enables linear volumetric scale-up for larger-capacity processing. Stable pressure and constant volume processing produce narrow particle size distributions that enable a higher yield of active ingredients postfiltration/-sterilization. Integrated temperature measurement allows for real-time monitoring at different process points, improving reliability.
