Smash Blender

Here’s another reason why I love my job.  It is anything but boring and I seem learn something new everyday.  I had a customer contact me the other day, requesting information on the Smash Blender.  I don’t know about you, but the name alone was intriguing.  It reminded me of the comedian Gallagher, who’s claim to fame was the Sledge-O-Matic.

The Aes Chemunex Inc / BioMerieux Smasher Blender, is actually also an homogenizer, designed to first crush the sample in record time and then automatically adjust the speed to ensure a perfect homogenization in creating an enrichment broth.  Yum!  Total blending time is reduced to 15 sec.   The unit has 3 speeds with a capacity of  80 – 400 ml and a noise level of 48 dBa, which, according to the manufacturer, is 10 dBa lest than any of the other blenders on the marker.  Smasher will sense any difficult sample that prevents full travel of its paddles and automatically returns to its starting position from where it resumes the task.

The unit has efficient cleaning and disinfection of the leak-proof chamber with an integrated waste drawer. Paddles can be removed within seconds without tools.   No fuss, no muss, no bother.  I Feel like I’m doing an infomercial.  As always, our knowledgeable staff are here to assist and answer any questions  that you may have.
