The BenchMasher™ is a high-speed mixing device that guarantees fast and effective mixing for consistent homogenization. It is particularly well-suited for sample preparation in situations where contamination elimination is crucial, such as in the detection of pathogens and microbes in food and water filters. Additionally, the BenchMasher™ finds applications in various scenarios where larger solid samples need to be broken down or when powders and polymers require thorough mixing.
To ensure convenience, samples of up to 400ml can be easily loaded into sterile blender bags, which are sealed upon closing the door. The mixing paddles strike the bags with rapid movements, resulting in comprehensive mixing and homogenization without direct contact with the sample. The device features a user-friendly programming interface, allowing for easy adjustment of mixing speed and cycle time through its large, full-color touch screen. The position of the paddles can also be adjusted to ensure efficient processing of samples. When thermal regulation is necessary, such as in Trichinella testing for meat, the chamber can be heated and maintained at temperatures up to 65°C.
For accessibility, the door of the BenchMasher™ is removable, allowing easy access to the chamber and stainless steel mixing paddles. Each paddle is equipped with a convenient rubber cover that can be effortlessly removed or replaced. Additionally, a built-in UV light (254nm) is incorporated into the chamber, which can be activated at any time to perform complete decontamination.
