Bring the precision, speed and safety of Labman's automated formulation technologies to your laboratory.
Advanced liquid handlingWe are pioneers in advanced material processing solutions focused on achieving stability and quality goals in formulation across a wide range of industries. Our precision liquid handling solutions, from automated pipetting systems and syringe pumps to robust peristaltic pumps, ensure accurate dispensing of almost any material, no matter how viscous, for meticulous formulation.
Mixing and stirringWe excel in the integration of mixing components, including vortexers, centrifuges, and orbital shakers, coupled with robotics-assisted mixing techniques. This ensures consistent and reproducible mixing, not only crucial for stability outcomes but also catering to various functional, chemical, and biological objectives within the formulation process. Labman's capabilities extend to stirring, including precise control during heating or cooling, providing researchers with a comprehensive solution for almost any product goal.
Powder handlingLabman leads with the integration of specific precision instruments including powder feeders, augers, and automated dispensing systems from pico to multi-gram, elevating the technical aspects of powder handling and feeding in the formulation process. Researchers benefit from unparalleled control and manipulation of powder components, ensuring accuracy and repeatability.
HomogenizationWe're experts at integrating advanced homogenization technologies into the automated formulation process. Our specialized instruments, ranging from high-pressure homogenizers to ultrasonic processors, ensure uniform particle size and distribution.
Environmental controlsConsistent environmental conditions throughout the formulation process can often be critical. Our advanced technologies encompass temperature control using equipment such as thermostatic baths and heating mantles, pressure regulation through reactors, and the establishment of inert gas atmospheres via mass flow controllers. This comprehensive approach guarantees meticulous control over key parameters, fostering a stable and reproducible environment for researchers.
Parameter control and monitoringIntegrated analytical instruments such as spectrophotometers and chromatographs ensure meticulous automated analysis of chemical compositions during the formulation process. Additionally, Labman can easily integrate viscometers and pH monitoring systems to enable maintainance of optimal viscosity and acidity levels. This comprehensive suite of technological tools allows researchers to fine-tune and monitor key parameters with very little manual intervention, ensuring the highest standards of quality, reproducibility, and adherence to formulation goals across a range of industries.
