The Stuart® SHM1 is incredibly powerful and versatile. The unit can handle virtually any processing application making it ideal for all homogenising applications such as tissue homogenisation, cell disruption, emulsions, suspensions and protein extraction and with the powerful motor especially suitable for tougher samples and larger volumes. The SHM1 can either be handheld for quick processes or securely stand mounted with a direct connection to the SHM/STAND.
The SHM1 can accommodate a selection of stainless steel probes for larger and tougher samples and also our polycarbonate disposable probes. Disposable probes are suitable for hard tissues and ideal where cross contamination is of concern. If necessary disposable probes can be easily dismantled and autoclaved up to seven times. Through careful selection of probe type samples of 0.03ml to 100mL can be processed.
All Stuart® homogenisers are supplied with a tool kit for dismantling the rotor stator generator probes for easy cleaning
BioCote anti-microbial coating additive is present on all Stuart brand equipment and offers anti-microbial action to help prevent cross-contamination.
This unique additive is applied during the manufacturing process and contains trace levels of active silver ions which provide an effective anti-microbial action, active against many strains of common bacteria and fungi, including Aspergillus niger, E.coli and Listeria mono.
This coating remains active for the entire product lifespan and can actually help in prolonging the life of products, where a build up of microbes may cause premature material degradation.
BioCote works by inhibiting bacteria in a number of ways including protein damage, cell membrane damage, oxidative damage and DNA interference. Ultimately, the bacteria are prevented from replicating. Without this, bacteria have been shown to die naturally within around 8 hours. BioCote works in a way different to antibiotics so it is currently effective against antibiotic resistant strains.
More recently, BioCote technology was proven effective against particular virus strains, with a reduction of 90% in 2 hours against feline coronavirus, strain Munich. Read more here.
