Synbiosis has launched an automated sample blender for food microbiologists.

ProBlend uses automatic bag closing technology ensuring the blending bags are tightly sealed to prevent unwanted leaks and spills.

It features a stainless steel chamber, with a waste drawer for spillage collection, as well as a removable door and quick release paddles, which can be taken apart to clean if an accidental leak does occur.

ProBlend’s ‘pendular’ blending paddle method provides power and efficiency which strokes samples (up to 70kg) for optimal and homogenous blending via a 28kg of pressure per paddle.

This method combined with the system’s rubber feet provides an operation, measuring 48 decibels.

Synbiosis said this reduced noise output allows microbiologists to continue with other lab tasks without the noise interference that is typical of many current sample blenders.

Kate George, senior divisional manager at Synbiosis, said food or environmental testing labs require a powerful, yet silent and efficient method of producing homogeneous liquid samples for diluting and culturing.

When combined with our new ProDilute and Protos 3 colony counter, Synbiosis can now provide a total package for microbiologists wanting to increase the productivity of their sample preparation, dilution and colony counting.”

Synbiosis is a division of the Synoptics Group of the Scientific Digital Imaging Company based in Cambridge, UK.
