MAXICATOR 3500ml - Masticator 400ml & 80ml Lab Paddle Blenders

masticator cap

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Masticator paddle blenders enable thorough homogenization of samples while isolating them from any possible contamination. The Masticator’s high quality enduring motors ensure a safe and efficient homogenization. Food, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and clinical laboratories that seek for reliable homogenization that is cross contamination free enjoy this solution. Masticator blenders disperse samples inside sterile bags with paddles that drive a squashing action while moving the sample from side to side. This key step in sample preparation ensures homogenous distribution of microorganisms throughout the diluent. Several models encompass a wide array of possibilities.

SYSTEM HIGHLIGHTS

No Sample Cross Contamination: Samples are protected of any contamination during homogenization thanks to the use of sterile disposable bags

Endurance: Second to none in endurance, the Masticator’s high quality spring system has proven to withstand the most challenging blending procedures. Customers benefit from a 3 year warranty for any masticator blender.

Ease of use: Masticators require virtually no maintenance and are easily cleaned when fully removing their front door.

APLICATION SCOPE

Masticator lab blenders are used in homogenizations during microbiological testing. Food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical labs like to use 400 ml Masticator blenders, these are meant to homogenize 10 to 40 g (previously diluted) samples. 400 ml bags with and without filters can be used, the former allow to ensure pipetting of debris-free homogenized liquid and are particularly recommended when homogenizations yield sample suspensions with high amounts of large-sized particles. Meanwhile, 80 ml Masticator compact models appeal to clinical and life science labs involved in small sample tissue homogenization (<10g), and to industrial QC labs that process small weight samples (<10g). Panoramic and Compact models allow for homogenization monitoring through windows located in their doors.

HOW TO CONTINUE PROCESING DILUTED SAMPLES

After dilution, sample-containing bags can be stored in Portabag bagholders, awaiting homogenization in Masticator blenders. Once homogenized, aliquots can be serially diluted using the Bio Dilutor. The Eddy Jet 2 spiral plater is used in order to reduce the amount of plates that are processed, offering a threefold decimal dilution counting range in a single plate. Following incubation, plates are automatically counted and fed with the Plate Handler or automatically counted and manually fed with the Flash&Go. With a 3.5 L volume capacity, the MAXICATOR completes IUL’s paddle blender range, allowing for blending of large composite samples.
