Constant Systems Ltd.
CF1 and CF2 High-pressure homogenizer
High pressure cell disruption - research to production
The high-pressure homogenizers from Constant Systems Ltd. enable efficient and reproducible lysis of various cell types - such as E. coli and very robust organisms like yeasts, algae and gram-positive bacteria. The product range offers solutions for smaller research experiments up to applications in larger production plants.

Models CF1 and CF2
The CF models homogenize cell suspensions continuously with the principle of high pressure relief (known as French-Press-principle). In a free selectable pressure range up to 2700 bar (40 kpsi) all kind of cell suspensions are processed and efficiently disrupted: bacteria, yeast, algae, mammalian and insect cells, fungus etc.. Even at the highest pressure proteins are not denatured, that is why this technology is very beneficial and mostly used for protein isolation. This model is designed for applications in research, development and analytics.
The model CF1 with 1.1 kW compressor power is the smaller table variant and processes sample volumes at a speed of 100 ml/min. Automatic sample supply and hydraulic cooling are optionally available.
For processing even larger volumes, the free-standing model CF2 is available with a process speed of 400 ml/min (24 l/h) and a compressor output of 4 kW.
Viscous samples need the alternative HAIVA model option, which can be built in all four compression versions. These systems have disruption head with an enlarged inlet area for clumpy or high viscous samples, e.g. filamentous fungus or plant cell cultures.
