A huge proportion of the homogenizers on the market are termed high-pressure. This indicates that the maximum operating pressure is significantly higher than that of other powerful mixing tools. However, it is infrequent to hear about low-pressure homogenization. Although less well-known, low-pressure homogenization has a distinct role within the science industry. Here we analyze the differences between high- and low-pressure homogenization, addressing the question of which is better.
Ultimately, in the case of low vs. high pressure homogenization, each might be better under different circumstances. As a laboratory, having access to both pressure options will optimize your productivity. Many of the higher quality high-pressure homogenizers on the market offer customizable options; with the easy turn of a dial, forces such as cavitation, shear, and importantly, pressure, can be adjusted. By acquiring a high-pressure homogenizer with low-pressure customizability, you can get the best of both worlds.
BEE: The Homogenizer Advantage
As you work to determine which high-pressure homogenizer brand and model will be best suited for your laboratory, begin the search with Pion's BEE brand Technology. We are globally recognized among laboratory managers and researchers for our high quality products and excellent customer support. Cell lysis and particle size reduction are two of a variety of applications for Pion homogenizers; nano/micro emulsions, lipids, suspensions, and dispersions are also easily achievable.
Importantly, Pion's homogenizers can achieve consistent particle sizes at or below 100 nm, a key benefit for products that require smaller droplet sizes. Additionally, the homogenizer processes can be controlled to suit your product, which will allow you to customize to your cell type. And finally, the equipment is easy to use, produces higher yield in less time, and achieves results that are reproducible and scalable.
