Pinch Dilutor – Gravimetric Diluter
A simple and efficient approach to streamline initial sample gravimetric dilutions is offered by the Pinch Dilutor. Its automated dilutions outmatch the manual method through precision, rapidity, sample handling sterility and reproducibility.
Food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic quality control labs benefit from its optimized workflow. First, samples are inserted inside sterile bags that are placed inside a holder that eases sample insertion while ensuring sterility by avoiding contamination of the bag’s interior. Next, the Pinch Dilutor automatically weighs them and dispenses an accurate amount of broth in order to dilute samples to a configurable dilution factor. Samples are now ready to be homogenized for further testing.
System HighlightsEasy to operate:
use two push buttons to command the device, calibration takes a few instants.Extremely simple setup:
inserting diluent containers in the device and removing them for sterilization and cleaning takes only a few seconds.Regulatory compliance:
ISO 7218 compliant.Uniqueness:
Uniquely silent, affordable, and with a very small foot print, it is the only diluter of its kind that dispenses liquids thanks to gravity. This ensures minimal maintenance as the device contains a single moving part.
