Turning a sample into a suspension—the essence of homogenizing—occurs in a wide range of laboratory applications. In life science and clinical research, scientists often homogenize tissue samples for various analytical studies.
Top 6 Questions You Should Ask When Buying a Homogenizer
- How does this homogenizer differ from the competition? What makes it superior in quality and cost effective for the scientist?
- What accessories are necessary to run the unit? Are there pre-assembled bead kits to use that will simplify the homogenization process?
- Does the company offer demo units for the scientist to test out?
- Does the company offer application and technical phone support before/after the product purchase?
- Ask about replacements in case the product parts break down with use.
- Finally, ask about cost of the purchase, installation charges, and warranty extension costs.
