How to Prepare Linen for Radiocarbon Dating

Radiocarbon dating is a common technique to determine the age of a sample.  Dating ancient linen samples such as found, for example, on mummy shrouds is a complex process involving cleaning the sample to remove neutron contamination on the external layers of the fiber.  Such contamination skew results and can occur over the years from…

Homogenizer Configurations for In-Line Processing

Lab homogenizers are versatile tools used to mix, emulsify, disperse, disrupt and otherwise subject materials to a violent action by passing them through what is called a rotor-stator generator.  For simplification we’ll say that homogenizers “mix.” Rotors are powered by a drive motor, most of which have controllable speeds.   The processing end of the rotor…

When to use Sealed and Non-Sealed Homogenizer Shafts

Laboratory homogenizer shaft assemblies have a number of components, all designed to work together to accomplish homogenizing, emulsifying, mixing, cell disruption, and similar processing.   The work performed governs the selection of the homogenizer generator, specifically choosing the correct rotor-stator configuration.  This includes the size (diameter) and the length of the shaft assembly. For certain homogenizing…
