    Introduction
    Avestin C5 high pressure homogeniser from Wolflabs. The EmulsiFlex-C5 from Avestin is a benchtop homogeniser ideal for a wide range of applications including nanoparticles, emulsions, liposomes and lysis of even tough cells like E-Coli and yeast. The unique EmulsiFlex design ensures that there are no "O"-rings or gaskets in the entire path of the product. This means less risk of contamination, easier cleaning and no leakage. Pressures of up to 30,000psi enable the EmulsiFlex-C5 to process the toughest samples. With a footprint of 43x17x31 cm, and weighing only 25kg, the C5 is compact enough to fit onto the most overcrowded lab bench without compromising power or performance.

    Features and benefits
    - Specially designed pump motor pilot valve ensures quiet operation..
    - Pneumatically controlled, dynamic homogenizing valve.
    - Easy disassembly for cleaning or inspection..
    - Same valve is used in larger models for scalable performance.
    - Stringent inlet and outlet temperatures can be controlled with the installation of a cooling coil or heat exchanger.
    - Suitable for cold room use.

    How to get the best out of your high pressure homogeniser
    - It is important that the user identifies the homogenising pressure that will achieve lysis of those particular cells, as pressures that are too low may prove ineffective.
    - Pressure and temperature are directly affected by each other. As a general rule, a 1000psi (69bar) increase in pressure results in a 1°C increase in temperature, which could potentially impact homogenisation results negatively – it is therefore important that pressure is controlled.
    - Tougher samples generally require higher pressures for processing. In the case of DNA or protein isolation, it is crucial that the optimal homogenising pressure for a particular sample does not induce a temperature high enough to damage sensitive intracellular products.
    - Temperature increase may therefore induce an increase in oil viscosity and thus emulsion viscosity, so it can directly and significantly alter the quality of the end product, given optimal viscosity of an emulsion is always crucial. Avestin machines can offer that precise temperature control via compatibility with cooling coils, as well as sanitary heat exchangers.
    - It should be noted that some products require high homogenising pressures for processing; however these pressures can damage sensitive products. For example, proteins may be denatured. A solution to this problem lies in lowering the pressure and increasing the number of passes through the machine. Multi-pass, high-pressure homogenisation has been shown to induce higher microbial inactivation than single-pass high-pressure homogenisation of which may be a preference to some.
    - In summary, the identification of the optimal parameters when processing samples via high pressure homogenisation, can allow both ease of use and cost-effectiveness.
