LV1_webNanomaterials Processing on the Milliliter Scale

We understand that university research teams are often constrained with limited materials and  resources. With the LV1 low volume Microfluidizer processor, uniform high shear fluid processing is finally available on samples as small as 1 ml. Featuring all the benefits of larger Microfluidizer machines, the easy-to-operate LV1 allows academic institutions to improve product quality and break new research ground without waste.

Partnering for Success
