Invest in Success: Start Your Cannabis-Infusion Business off Right

Success in the lucrative cannabis-products marketplace will depend heavily on your ability to consistently deliver high-quality products. And that depends on your willingness to invest in the right laboratory homogenizer equipment. Make no mistake: This is no job for home appliances. A kitchen blender, for example, may seem adequate for blending CBD-laced salves or tinctures…

Cannabis Infusions: Homogenizer vs. Overhead Stirrer

Products featuring cannabis infusions should be manufactured using laboratory-grade high shear homogenizers. While overhead stirrers are adequate for many simple laboratory mixing tasks, they are generally not capable of generating the necessary particle size reductions required to produce high-quality cannabis-infused products that consistently feature stated amounts of active ingredients. Uniform particle size reduction, and uniform…

Video – The Assembly and Disassembly of the DK 30

In these videos, our expert demonstrates the steps involved in properly assembling — and then disassembling — the DK30 Flow-Through-Chamber with the new G30 shaft. Watch for helpful tips, such as applying a thin layer of food-grade silicone grease to the unit’s two O-rings, so they seat snugly.     View the proper sequence of…

Our Homogenizer Tools are Interchangeable to Meet Changing Needs

The elegance of CAT Scientific’s laboratory homogenizers derives from their flexibility and supreme utility. No two particle size reduction tasks are exactly the same. Nor do all mixing tasks feature the same challenges. The liquid medium, for instance, often ranges from a simple aqueous solution to a thick, viscous medium, such as an oil or…

How to Disassemble, Clean, and Reassemble the G40 Rotor-Stator Shaft

In this video, we demonstrate the precise steps you’ll need to take after every use of your G40 rotor/stator shaft assembly. Cleaning immediately after every use is crucial to prevent potential cross contamination of subsequent samples or procedures. Given the exceptionally fine stator slots and rotor geometries, fine particles can become lodged in these precision devices.…

The Importance of Uniform Cannabinoid Distribution in CBD Products

The manufacture and sale of products featuring cannabidiol (CBD) has exploded in recent years. The wildly popular non-psychoactive compound, derived from hemp, is highly popular with eager consumers. However, there’s a potential proverbial fly in the ointment. CBD products are presently unregulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). And independent analyses have shown…

X1740 High Power Homogenizer Drive

The 1,700-watt X1740 High Power Homogenizer Drive is our highest power homogenizer. Capable of handling liquid volumes ranging from 0.5 L up to 20 L, the X1740 may offer impressive homogenizing power, but it still works with all of our accessory shafts, from the relatively small T20 dispensing shaft, to the high capacity G40. Available separately,…

X1000 Homogenizer with DK30 Flow-Through-Chamber Attachment

Many simple laboratory mixing tasks in are accomplished using laboratory magnetic hotplate stirrers. These simple devices allow users to drop a teflon-coated stir bar into a given liquid, turn on the hotplate stirrer, adjust revolution speed, and achieve thorough mixing. Obviously, the hotplate component of the system allows for gentle, precisely controlled heating of the…

Basic Mixology: Magnetic Hotplate Stirrers to Sophisticated Homogenizers

From the ancient alchemists to modern biotechnology labs, stirring has always been a fundamental activity in any laboratory. The pursuit of desirable chemical reactions and properly blended reagents often requires significant stirring. It’s the only way to blend diverse components. A simple magnetic hotplate stirrer may suffice for many purposes in the lab; to mix…
