Nano vs. Micro DeBEE: Which High Pressure Homogenizer is Right For You?

Over the past few years, an increasing number of science professionals have come forward to cast doubt on truthfulness of current scientific literature. This stunning fact is likely influenced by a combination of factors such as poorly run experiments, political agendas, and desire to stand out. (1) To ensure that your own literature does not fall into these depths, you must, of course, start off with a well-designed procedure and be 100% objective when interpreting results. But secondly, and just as importantly, you must use equipment that will work exactly as programmed, and which will allow for high quality and reproducible results. Pion manufacturers multiple homogenizer models that use both intensive pressure and mechanical force to produce smooth and consistent mixtures. Keep reading to learn about two primary models, the Nano DeBEE and MicroDeBEE, and how they can promote the release of truthful and objective scientific literature by first providing accurate and reproducible results.

Micro DeBEE Laboratory Homogenizer

The MicroDeBEE is a compact laboratory homogenizer comprised of an air powered unit, with the capacity to process as little as 15 mL and as much as 15 L each hour. Not only is it easy to use in its adjustability and maintenance, but it also has specifications that are advantageous for experimentation in a research lab. For example, it can reach up to 45,000 PSI/3100 bar (at 150 PSI, 55 CFM) for maximum experimentation. Additionally, the back pressure can reach 5,000 PSI/350 bar but is adjustable to your specific process.

Nano DeBEE Laboratory Homogenizer

Similar to the Micro DeBEE, the Nano DeBEE is a laboratory homogenizer; yet it is distinct in that it is an electric unit as opposed to air powered. Moreover, the Nano DeBEE was designed with scaling in mind; it is an ideal machine for the small samples used in the R&D phase of drug development, and can process up to 7 L per hour. As with its sister Micro DeBEE, the Nano DeBEE can reach up to 45,000 PSI/3100 bar and offers both lifetime training and unmatched customer support/troubleshooting.

Pion: The Homogenizer Advantage

On determining which homogenizer will be right for your lab, begin your 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's BEE brand homogenizers; nano/micro emulsions, lipids, suspensions, and dispersions are also easily achievable. 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.
