Product Focus: Avanti® Mini-Extruder




The Avanti Mini-Extruder allows researchers and scientists to prepare large, unilamellar vesicles by extrusion in an efficient, rapid manner. The holder/heating block allows the extrusion of unilamellar vesicles at elevated temperatures, which is critical for the successful production of vesicles from phospholipids with a phase transition temperature above room temperature. Constructed of stainless steel and Teflon, this new design allows rapid cleaning of all wetted parts, which reduces the “down-time” between production of vesicles from different lipid species. The Mini-Extruder is available for a fraction of the cost of a larger extruder. All parts for the Mini-Extruder are available from Avanti, and the Mini-Extruder comes with a 30 day workmanship guarantee.


Kits

The Avanti  Mini-Extruder allows researchers and scientists to prepare large, unilamellar vesicles by extrusion (LUVET) in an efficient, rapid manner.

Extruder Set With Holder/Heating Block (610000)

Mini-Extruder (set): includes instructions, mini-extruder, 2 syringes, 100 PC membranes,
100 filter supports, and 1 holder/heating block

Extruder Set Without Holder/Heating Block (610023)

Mini-Extruder (set): includes instructions, mini-extruder, 2 syringes, 100 PC membranes, and 100 filter supports

Filter Support (610014)

10mm Filter Supports (100/pk)
For use with the extruder to provide extra support and improved flow rate. It provides a flat surface to eliminate tearing or rupturing of the polycarbonate membrane. It is also used as a separator between membrane layers in serial stack filtration applications. The polyester filter support is binder free and has a thickness of 100 µm. The filter support disc is chemically inert.

Polycarbonate Membranes

  • 610002 – 0.03μm 19mm (100/pk)
  • 610003 – 0.05μm 19mm (100/pk)
