PRO Scientific DPS-20 mechanical/ultrasonic homogeniser

Thursday, 21 January, 2010 | Supplied by: Bio-Strategy Pty Ltd

The PRO Scientific DPS-20 Dual Processing System is a homogeniser for use in the sample preparation field. It combines full automation of mechanical and ultrasonic homogenising methods into a closed compact and time-saving unit. This system allows the use of each homogenising method dependently or independently of each other within a programmable or manual mode.

The three-products-in-one design of the DPS-20 allows the system to be used as an automated ultrasonic homogenising system, an automated mechanical homogenising system or as an automated mechanical and ultrasonic homogenising system.

The DPS-20 contains a brushless motor for mechanical homogenising and 130 W processor for ultrasonic homogenising. This system can be used with 15, 16, 19 and 50 mL tubes. Users can process up to 20 samples in one run; a typical run time for 20 samples is less than 15 minutes. Its memory capacity can store up to 9 programs at one time or the system can be used in manual mode for individual sample processing.

With mechanical homogenising the advantage can be seen in faster sample breakdown of all types of samples without introducing heat and with limited noise level. However, the particle reduction has limitations, while ultrasonic homogenising has the advantage of higher particle reduction levels. However, negatives can be introducing heat into the sample, a limited use of sample types and volumes, and elevated noise levels.

The DPS-20 merges the advantages of both mechanical and ultrasonic homogenising, which leads to a faster and more efficient sample breakdown with minimal or no heat introduced while in a sound enclosure for noise reduction. The automation of this system allows for repeat processing and consistent results, which frees up a large amount of time and work in the laboratory.
