• Homogénéisateur


  • IUL - Maxicator

The perfect solution for homogenizing large volume blending and extraction of samples!


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 and cross-contamination free homogenization 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. 




Features and Benefits:

  • Reduce work load on lab technician
  • Long tradition of reliability and robustness
  • Use metal springs to move the paddles and not a belt
  • Limitless duration assured by a 3 years manufacturer warranty
  • Small bench space required due to its long rather than wide design
  • Viewing window option (panoramic models) for better monitoring of sample condition
  • Works with large selection of Lab Blending Bags
  • Motor Speed - 650-1400 rpm
  • Strokes ; 3-4-5-6
  • Dimensions; 17.3*19.7*22.4 in Weight; 116 lbs Weight boxed: 155 lbs
  • Comes with a stainless steel tray with drain included


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

Endurance: Second ta none in endurance, the Masticator's high quality spring system has proven to withstand the most challenging blending procedures. Customers benefit tram 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 ta 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 ta ensure pipetting of debris-free homogenized liquid and are particularly recommended when homogenizations yield sample suspensions with high amounts of large-sized particles. Panora­mic and Compact models allow for homogenization monitoring through windows located in their doors. Meanwhile, 80 ml Masti­cator compact models appeal ta clinical and lite science labs involved in small sample tissue homogenization (<1 Og), and ta industrial QC labs that process small weight samples (<10g). HOMOGENIZATION




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 ta 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.
