Fractionator 

Principal UserDr Yarjan Samad
Deputy UserDr Jeremiah Marcellino

 

The combination of the gradient master and the piston gradient fractionator offer a quantum leap in reproducibility and resolution. Visible light scattering band visualization system for particles as small as viruses and ribosomes. · >99% accuracy and reproducibility in piston movement with readout to 0. 01 mm. · programmable fractionation and rinsing. · rinse and air pumps to clean sample tubing after each fraction. · patented trumpet tip™ piston gradually compresses thin bands of particles into vertical columns prior to capture.

 

Freeze Dryer 

Principal UserDr Yarjan Samad
Deputy UserDr Jeremiah Marcellino

 

The LyoQuest laboratory freeze dryers are designed to be a multipurpose unit.  8.7 kg condenser capacity. On a functional level, cooling management ensures optimum performance. Flexible use: with a touch screen user interface. Double stage vacuum pump with gas ballast and safety valve to isolate the pump from the system, so avoiding oil backstreaming. Refrigerating system. Cascade system. Coil type condenser. The system includes two hermetic compressors with cascade mounting with suitable safety devices. Control unit with digital display and friendly user touch screen.

High Speed Mixer 

Principal UserDr Yarjan Samad
Deputy UserDr Jeremiah Marcellino

 

The new Silverson L5M-A – is ideal for all laboratory work, research and development, QA analysis and small scale production.

The L5M-A Laboratory Mixer is suitable for the widest range of applications – mixing, emulsifying, homogenizing, disintegrating and dissolving. With a capacity from 1ml up to 12 liters and the ability to mix in-line with flow rates up to 20 liters/minute, they offer excellent reproducibility when scaling up to full-scale production and provide an accurate and easy means of forecasting the performance of larger Silverson machines under full-scale working conditions.

The multifunctional lab mixer features touch screen control with digital tachometer, programmable integral timer and amperage display.

 

 

Microfluidizer

Principal UserDr Yarjan Samad
Deputy UserDr Jeremiah Marcellino

 

M110P-30K high shear bench-top fluid processor without compressed air or hydraulic cooling water, running on a standard 120-volt, 20-amp, single-phase power outlet. The MIcrofluidizer produces stable nanodispersions and nanoemulsions, cell disruption (e. coli, yeast), and micro/nanoencapsulation in polymers, liposomes and oils.

 

Sonicator 

Principal UserDr Yarjan Samad
Deputy UserDr Jeremiah Marcellino

 

The new Elmasonic S Cleaning Units provide state-of-the-art microprocessor controlled ultrasonic cleaning and sweeping technology with a user-friendly LED display to ensure excellent operation.

 

ULVAC - LG Evaporator 

Principal UserDr Dong-Wook Shin
Deputy UserDr Hyung Woo Choi

 

This is a batch type high vacuum evaporation system for the deposition of metal and oxide on a substrate. Since the operation panel of this system has an integrated control function that realizes automated vacuum and deposition process, it is recommended for R&D use as well as for small-scale manufacturing. Batch type, high vacuum evaporation system.
