Save time and money

The BUCHI Mixer B-400 reduces the number of essential analyses per sample due to the complete homogeneity of samples.

Special version for the trace element analysis

For trace element analysis, the homogenized sample must be free of contamination. The B-400 is available with components in contact with the sample made of borosilicate glass, inert plastics (PP and PEEK), or titanium. The cutting knife is high quality ceramic.

Microbiological sample testing

For microbiological sample testing, sterility is an absolute requirement. A PVDF membrane permits autoclave sterilization of all components contacting the sample.

Unmatched safety

The B-400 has been awarded the official GS mark for "Tested Safety" - meeting maximum requirements on safe operation and functionality. A major feature: The knife of the mixer can only rotate with the safety door closed. If the door is opened while mixing is in progress, the knife stops automatically.
