A recent investment in a Silverson heavy-duty laboratory mixer will enable award-winning product development specialist, Here2Grow, to produce small-batch formulations in advance of scale-up volumes.
The multifunctional L5M-A laboratory mixer is ideal for all laboratory work, research and development, QA analysis and small-scale production in all industries. Suitable for the widest range of applications – mixing, emulsifying, homogenising, disintegrating and dissolving – with an efficiency and flexibility unmatched by other machines. With a capacity from 1ml up to 12 litres and the ability to mix in line with flow rates up to 20 litres/minute, it offers excellent reproducibility when scaling up to full-scale production.
Commenting on the investment, Here2Grow’s Dr Henry Brew said: “I chose this specific model as it can handle up to 12-litre batches and has different replaceable mixing heads. The mixer can outperform other mixers in our laboratory in terms of time, power and efficacy, enabling us to consistently create batches to the correct specification, and without compromise.
“It also gives us the capability to consistently manufacture products for small laboratory scale batches, specifically for personal care and homecare finished products. This is a service we currently offer.”
