Homogenizers are common in clinical and research laboratories. In cell culture and microbiology laboratories they are often used to suspend cells. In a clinical laboratory it can be used to mix test reagents or to mix an experimental sample and diluent.
Laboratory homogenizers are used to guarantee that all the components of the prepared suspensions have the same characteristics. They are also used for gentle mixing for fast and accurate resuspension of cells and components of chemical and biological liquids in tubes. Because homogenization is a key process in the preparation of samples of biological origin, prior to the analysis of nucleic acids, proteins, cell studies, metabolism, and pathogens.
Homogenizers are vitally important and highly useful in most food and beverage, cosmetic, science and technology industries, as well as many other industries where the manufacturing process must be combined and emulsified.
