How a High Pressure Homogenizer Benefits Pharmaceutical Creams

Posted by Deb Shechter on May 2, 2016 1:30:00 PM

how-a-high-pressure-homogenizer-benefits-pharmaceutical-creams.jpgModern-day medicine, as you know, has grown leaps and bounds from what it once was even 100 years ago. Pharmaceutical treatments abound, from pills to injections to creams. Creams, a non-invasive mode of drug delivery, are used to treat a variety of conditions, mostly skin-related (e.g. rashes, stings, and fungal infections). As its production method largely dictates its effectiveness, here we will look at some benefits of using high pressure homogenization to create pharmaceutical creams.

Forms Emulsions

The intensive mixing achieved by homogenizers is ideal for forming emulsions, which are comprised of two immiscible liquids. A high proportion of most pharmaceutical creams is made up of emulsions, so pharmaceutical companies are willing to invest in machinery that will make this ingredient effectively. High pressure homogenizers, in particular, have the ability to reduce particle size more significantly than most mixers, due to both the high pressure and multiple mechanical forces acting on a sample; the droplets therefore have more surface area, which is advantageous for optimal function.

Promotes Chemical Stability

Most people can think of a cream, lotion, or other household ingredient that needs to be mixed before each use because the two phases separate. Not only is it annoying, but it can also have a negative impact on the product’s ability to do its job. High pressure homogenization, due to its high power, promotes chemical stability for a longer product shelf life and higher level of function.

Consumer Benefits

Consumers who use pharmaceutical creams produced by high pressure homogenization can expect numerous physiological benefits. For example, the emulsions within pharmaceutical creams improve bioavailability and dissolution rates, especially for poorly water-soluble drugs. Additionally, the manufacturer can program a cream for slow or rapid drug release, depending on the specific condition being treated.

BEE International: Equipment For Efficient Emulsion Production

As you either embark on, or continue along, the process of producing emulsions for pharmaceutical creams, your product’s success may depend on the equipment used to make it. High pressure homogenization is the most common method for producing emulsions, because of both its powerful mixing process and its cost/time effectiveness. The homogenizer will shear fluid by forcing it through a restrictive valve, forming a high-quality emulsion. BEE International Technology is trusted by lab managers and scientists around the world for their high-pressure homogenizers. They offer homogenizers that are both high-quality and reliable, and which can help your lab produce nano/micro emulsions, dispersions, and suspensions to be incorporated into your pharmaceutical cream.

Which Features Does Your Homogenizer Need to Have?

Posted by Deb Shechter on Apr 29, 2016 12:30:00 PM

which-features-does-your-homogenizer-need-to-have.jpgThe homogenizer market is saturated with options for potential buyers. While this helps to maintain competitive pricing and high quality products, the buyer may be faced with an intimidating process, especially when it is the first time purchasing this class of equipment. However, with some guidance, the process can become more approachable and have better odds of matching you with an effective machine. Below is a compilation of features - which provide multiple options and high quality results- that your homogenizer should have.

Multi-Pass Option

Particle size reduction, one of the most common homogenizer processes, will range in efficiency depending on the machine used. The process works by passing a sample through a narrow space while mechanical forces act on it; more passes equates to a tighter particle size distribution and overall smaller particle size. When looking for homogenizer equipment, seek out those with a multi-pass option, as opposed to a single-pass option. (1)

Multiple Mechanical Forces

The intensive mixing achieved by a homogenizer is largely in thanks to its high pressure and mechanical forces; they are able to create desirable results like decreased particle size and enhanced emulsion stability. Some mixing equipment only offers a single mechanical force, while homogenizers (and a small number of other types of mixers) offer multiple forces, such as turbulence, cavitation, and shear. When searching for a homogenizer for purchase, look for the product that offers more, rather than less, mechanical forces. You’ll be happy you did so later.

Scalability

The innovative products coming out of many industries begin with an idea at the lab bench. Any product that incorporates emulsions, dispersions, or suspensions will require homogenization. Once this product is successfully made in the lab, it must be scaled to manufacturing in preparation for consumer sales. A scalable homogenizer will save both time and money, in that it will be easy to replicate the same high quality product while maintaining the same conditions.

BEE: The Homogenizer Advantage

As you hunt for homogenizer equipment that will suit your lab’s purposes, consider how identification of the above-listed factors will help secure a machine that is better suited to your needs. Although many companies manufacture homogenizers, few are of the high quality needed to achieve reliable and reproducible results. One example of equipment that does meet such expectations is the high pressure homogenizer by BEE International Technology.

BEE’s products are trusted by researchers and lab managers around the world for key benefits, such as production of nano/micro emulsions, dispersions, and suspensions; importantly, this equipment can achieve consistent particle sizes at or below 100 nm, a key benefit for researchers & corporations across a wide variety of industries.

How to Scale the Production of Emulsions

Posted by David Shechter on Apr 28, 2016 12:30:00 PM

how-to-scale-the-production-of-emulsions.jpgEmulsions comprise many of the products we enjoy every day, from cosmetic lotions to salad dressings, all the way to cutting fluids for metalworking. Yet every company that produces these types of products had to start in the laboratory by first making the emulsion, then incorporating it into a product of choice, and finally scaling it for consumer distribution. Here we provide a ‘how-to’ for emulsion scaling, centered around efficiency for both time and finance, while maintaining a high quality product.

Determine which mixer and company to use

When you enter the market for a mixer, the equipment used to produce emulsions, you will quickly find that there are various types. Blenders, inline mixers, millers, homogenizers, and grinders are just a sampling of the more well-known processes; of these, homogenization is one of the more easily scalable processes. Once a process has been selected, it is important to carefully research the companies that manufacture the necessary equipment. Certain companies will offer equipment that is a better fit for your lab, in addition to the support, warranty, and customer service associated with the purchased product.

Isolate a successful emulsion production technique

Regarding composition, an emulsion is typically comprised of two immiscible phases, oftentimes water and oil. The key to an emulsion is that these phases are mixed into a single solution, and a stable emulsion will remain that way. At least one surfactant is also required to facilitate droplet detachment and stabilize the mixture. Using a laboratory mixer (see above step for guidance), you can now isolate a technique that produces the emulsion of your dreams.

Scale without changing conditions

While few struggle with laboratory optimization of emulsion formulation, scale-up to industrial production may require significant troubleshooting. Using the formulation that was successful in the lab, with similar concentration of ingredients, is usually not the problem. Yet maintaining the same intensity of forces like shear and cavitation can be more limiting, and should be carefully considered. (1)

BEE International: Homogenizers Made For Emulsions

Emulsion production and scaling to industrial production involves high pressure mixing, most commonly in the form of homogenization. Homogenization is the preferable method due to its ability to reduce particle sizes more significantly than other blending methods. The first step in synthesizing a w/o or o/w emulsion is purchasing equipment that will achieve small and consistent particle size distribution. One such example is the high pressure homogenizer by BEE International Technology. Our products are trusted by pharmaceutical researchers and lab managers around the world for key benefits, such as production of nano/micro emulsions, dispersions, and suspensions; importantly, this equipment can achieve consistent particle sizes at or below 100 nm, a key benefit for researchers & corporations that synthesize pharmaceutical products.

In addition, BEEI offers homogenizers for all parts of the scaling process. From laboratory homogenizers to pilot-plant machines and finally, to industrial units, these products make the scaling transition more seamless and less error-prone.

How to Achieve Uniform Particle Size Reduction

Posted by David Shechter on Apr 27, 2016 12:30:00 PM

how-to-achieve-uniform-particle-size-reduction.jpgParticle size reduction, while used across multiple industries, is not as well-known as it should be- particularly considering its critical role in the synthesis of numerous products. When a scientist or company takes on a process that requires this technique, the path to achieving a high quality product may not be well-defined. Here we present key points of the particle size reduction process to set you up for implementation of a uniform and consistent particle reduction process.

Know your sample

The product you are looking to yield will hugely impact the starting components. For example, emulsion and dispersion synthesis requires incorporation of a surfactant; without it, the sample will have a high surface tension. Cell lysis, another common technique, may target specific intracellular proteins, DNA, or other molecules. Depending on the molecule of interest, one or more buffers, along with other supporting chemicals, may be needed. Knowing the chemical and physical properties of your sample beforehand will alleviate much troubleshooting and time wasted.

Select a machine that fits your sample’s needs

Reduction of a droplet’s size is a physical, as opposed to chemical, change. It is therefore necessary that the machine you select does not impose heat or cold during the particle size reduction process, so as not to change your sample’s chemical makeup. Additionally, if you require a specific particle size, select a machine that can at least match its needs. For example, basic blenders will achieve lower quality kitchen results, whereas high pressure homogenizers are among the highest tier of laboratory equipment.

Use equipment that imparts multiple mechanical forces

Homogenization, particularly high pressure homogenization, works by imparting impressive amounts of pressure on a sample while it is being forced through a narrow space. While most mixing methods impart only a single mechanical force, a handful of available equipment uses multiple forces, like turbulence, cavitation, shear, and impact. The impact of multiple, as opposed to one, mechanical forces, is smaller particle size and enhanced uniformity.

What is a Homogenizer and Who Uses It?

Posted by David Shechter on Apr 26, 2016 12:30:00 PM

what-is-a-homogenizer-and-who-uses-it.jpgThe intensive mixing process has existed for decades, beginning with the advent of the blender by Stephen Poplawski in 1922. (1) The equipment has since evolved to something more complex and with more potential functions; users now have the option of a basic blender for simple kitchen processes, or an intensive mixing homogenizer designed for laboratory use. Yet while the general public is familiar with the functions and appropriate occasions for blender use, the same is not true for a homogenizer. Below is a compilation of homogenizer functions, potential uses, and the people/industries who should consider acquiring one.

Homogenization works by forcing the sample through a narrow space. Multiple forces (including turbulence and cavitation) in addition to high pressure, can act on the sample to create a high quality product. Specifically because of its powerful pressure, homogenization is frequently used for particle size reduction or cell lysis. These processes can result in a valuable yield, from creating cell lysates containing valuable proteins or DNA to producing emulsions, dispersions, and suspensions. Although a myriad of other mixing machines exist, the homogenizer is superior for multiple reasons. Not only is it easily scalable, but it also uses multiple mechanical forces (as opposed to one, which is the case for most mixing equipment); this results in a stable, uniform, and consistent product.

Multiple industries can, and do, take advantage of the impressive homogenizer capabilities. In the pharmaceutical industry, researchers use the scalable homogenizer first during laboratory research, and then in clinical trials and manufacturing. Its yields are typically incorporated into critical products like vaccines, antibiotics, cancer treatment, and pharmaceutical creams. In the beverage industry, homogenized milk has a longer shelf life and is more stable and physically attractive. And in the biotech industry, particle size reduction can yield nanoparticles and other new innovations. The foods and chemical industries also see significant homogenizer use; see here to learn about its benefits in the food industry and here for its necessary role in the chemical industry.

BEE: The Homogenizer Advantage

How Do Sanitary Homogenizers Differ From Regular Homogenizers?

Posted by Tal Shechter on Apr 25, 2016 12:30:00 PM

how-do-sanitary-homogenizers-differ-from-regular-homogenizers.jpgHomogenizers come in many different shapes and sizes; regardless, they should be able to create a homogenous and thoroughly mixed product. While the word ‘sanitary’ is frequently thrown around, it is apparent that there is little (or misconceived) understanding of how it fits into the world of intensive mixing. There is little difference between a sanitary homogenizer and a regular homogenizer, aside from the huge fact that sanitary homogenizers can accommodate sanitary applications- for example, products coming out of the food, beverage, biotech, and pharmaceutical must be 100% free of contamination. Sanitary homogenizers have both removed the potential for contamination and met/exceeded the existing standards to be labeled as sanitary. Here we review these critical benefits conferred by sanitary homogenizers.

Contain In-Line Flow

In-line flow is essentially a meter that conducts measurements of numerous factors during product production. This design virtually eliminates dead ends and crevices, and has a huge impact on a product’s ability to remain sterile at the end of its production process.

Meet Strict Standards

Two central standards (largely specific to the food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries) dictate sanitary homogenization and practices in product development. GMP, or Good Manufacturing Practices, is a set of guidelines and requirements that dictate the manufacture of food and drug products. (1) The second is known as P3-A, which was developed by API (active pharmaceutical ingredient) manufacturers when they saw a need for standards around pharmaceutical equipment design. The P3-A standards dictate the materials and design for equipment that will produce APIs.

Decreased Sterilization Costs

Products that not are synthesized under a sanitary system must undergo post-homogenization sterilization, particularly those which are being consumed by humans or other living organisms. There is, of course, cost (sometimes significant) associated with setting up and running these additional systems. In contrast, purchasing a system that contains a built-in sanitary system will not require such stringent sterilization afterwards, therefore alleviating any associated costs.

BEE International: Manufacturer of Sanitary Homogenizers

The stringent regulations dictated by GMP and 3-A have yielded a wide array of sanitary lab equipment, such as mixers, transducers, coolers, priming valves, and more; these are frequently used across the pharmaceutical, biotech, food, and beverage industries. BEE International Technology is trusted by researchers and lab managers around the world, and provides an array of high quality sanitary systems that can be customized to any BEEI homogenizer.

In addition, they have extensive experience in the challenges that our pharmaceutical, biotech, and food industry customers face as they transition from concept, through to R&D, clinical trials, all-important FDA approval and finally, to manufacturing.

How to Select a Homogenizer for Food Production

Posted by David Shechter on Apr 21, 2016 12:30:00 PM

how-to-select-a-homogenizer-for-food-production.jpgAlthough many may wish otherwise, the modern American diet is largely comprised of foods with artificial/non-natural additives. These products provide us with much nutrition and energy to live healthy and successful lives, so it is critical that their production is considered. Foods like dairy and salad dressings require an intensive mixing process to be produced; homogenizers are commonly chosen for this purpose because of their effectiveness over other machines. Once your laboratory has decided to use a homogenizer in the food production process, finding the right one may feel daunting. Here we present two key factors that any high quality homogenizer should possess, and which you should look for in a potential purchase.

  • Ability to Scale

As in most other industries, the food industry lab bench is a place of discovery and innovation. When a food product with the potential to be marketed to consumers is synthesized, it needs to be scaled in a way that does not change its production procedure. When looking for a homogenizer for your food product, scalability is a key factor that differentiates a high quality product from a pool of competitors. Some companies, for example, offer separate laboratory, pilot-plant, and industrial homogenizers to accommodate each stage of the scaling process.

  • Particle Size Reduction Capability

Although not a well-studied area compared with other nutritional sciences, particle size reduction from homogenization may confer significant health benefits. These criteria will make a food product more marketable to the consumer. For example, decreased particle size has the potential to increase growth and reduce food intake by boosting satiety. (1, 2) Additionally, the food product itself will be more stable when the particles’ surface area is increasingly available, and their texture will be more uniform and consistent.

BEEI: High Quality Particle Size Reduction Equipment

A food’s ability to have its intended effect can be attributed to a wide variety of factors. In particular, particle size and consistency in size are high-impact factors that every food manufacturer should consider. The first step in synthesizing a food product that confers high bioavailability is purchasing equipment that will achieve consistent particle size distribution. One such example is the high pressure homogenizer by BEE International Technology. Their products are trusted by researchers and lab managers around the world for key benefits, such as production of nano/micro emulsions, dispersions, and suspensions; importantly, this equipment can achieve consistent particle sizes at or below 100 nm, a key benefit for any product coming from the food industry.

How Are Emulsions & Homogenizers Related?

Posted by Tal Shechter on Apr 20, 2016 12:30:00 PM

how-are-emulsions-homogenizers-related.jpgThe availability of common household products like salad dressings, dairy products, pharmaceutical and cosmetic creams/lotions, and more, is possible because of emulsions. An emulsion is a mixture of two immiscible liquids- commonly oil and water. Because these opposing liquids wouldn’t naturally interact, emulsion production requires powerful mixing to achieve a stable product. Most industries solve this dilemma by homogenizing their samples; yet what is homogenization, and why is it a chosen method of emulsion production? Keep reading to find out.

Homogenizersare part of a class of processing equipment that work to reduce the particle size of a given sample. When a sample enters the machine, it must pass through a narrow space while being acted on by high pressure and multiple mechanical forces (e.g. cavitation, turbulence, shear). Compared with other mixing processes, homogenization confers a number of advantages, regardless of the product being synthesized. For example, other machines like inline mixers use only a single mechanical force, while the multiple forces of a homogenizer allow for smaller particle sizes and more stable mixtures.

Specific to emulsions, homogenization offers three primary benefits:

1) Production of stable emulsions. This means that the two phases won’t separate after sitting for long periods of time, and is accomplished by the intensive pressure imparted on the sample.

2) Ability to decrease particle size. As indicated earlier, homogenizers utilize pressure along with multiple mechanical forces to decrease particle size more than most other available mixing equipment. Through the lens of an emulsion, this results in higher surface area availability of the dispersed phase and enhanced bioavailability.

3) Overcomes resistance of two immiscible liquids. Water and oil, in a mixing machine, impart resistance because of their opposing attractions. The high shear offered by homogenization helps to overcome this resistance to produce a high quality emulsion.

BEE International: Bringing You the Advantage of Homogenizers

Emulsion production involves high pressure mixing, with homogenization as a popular method for its ability to reduce particle sizes more significantly than other blending methods. The first step in synthesizing an emulsion is purchasing equipment that will achieve small and consistent particle size distribution. One such example is the high pressure homogenizer by BEE International Technology. Our products are trusted by researchers and lab managers around the world and within all industries for key benefits, such as production of nano/micro emulsions, dispersions, and suspensions. Importantly, this equipment can achieve consistent particle sizes at or below 100 nm, a key benefit for products that require stable emulsions.

In addition, BEE has extensive experience assisting its product users as they transition through the drug development process. Our homogenizers are differentiated for R&D, clinical trials, and manufacturing, and our customer support is reliable, experience-driven, and effective.

3 Indicators of Effective Chemical Process Equipment

Posted by Tal Shechter on Apr 19, 2016 12:30:00 PM

3-indicators-of-effective-chemical-process-equipment.jpgChemical process equipment, specifically homogenizers, can have a significant impact on the quality of product being purchased by consumers. Such products range from adhesives, resins, pigments, polymers, pastes, and more. When working to produce them, it is important to keep in mind factors that will give your product an edge over competition.

Keep reading for what any scientist should look for in his/her chemical process equipment, specifically homogenizers, and which will indicate its effectiveness.

  • Can be scaled to manufacturing

The chemical industry is one of innovation; as such, this work must begin in the laboratory with experimentation and trial-and-error. When a newly-discovered product needs to be scaled to manufacturing, the process can be much easier when scalable equipment is involved. Some companies make their homogenizers scalable, so that one can be used in the small-scale lab setting, yet another machine that can handle large-scale manufacturing doesn’t require a change in process.

  • Reduces particle size

Decreased size of the particles comprising a chemical product has far-reaching effects. In terms of reactions, products can expect to have enhanced dissolution rates, quicker reaction time, and decreased need for enzyme catalysts. Additionally, finer/smaller (vs. coarse/larger) particles promote stability; this point is particularly critical for chemical products comprised of emulsions or dispersions. High quality homogenizers reduce particle size much more efficiently than other mixing methods; impressively, it can accomplish this with pressure instead of heat, which translates to enhanced product color intensities and extraction processes. (1)

  • Synthesizes high quality dispersions

Homogenizers serve numerous functions- blending, synthesis of suspensions, and emulsion production to name a few- yet some are more frequently used in a given industry than others. For example, dispersions are used for a variety of products, including paints, acrylics, polymers, and petroleum additives. The powerful mixing achieved by homogenization allows for maximum particle packing, better particle coating during formulations, increased conductivity, and smoother surface quality. Additionally, the stability achieved during particle size reduction (as described in the above point) prevents the mixture’s phases from separating over time.

How Industrial Homogenizers Maximize Efficiency for Dispersions

Posted by Deb Shechter on Apr 18, 2016 12:30:00 PM

how-industrial-homogenizers-maximize-efficiency-for-dispersions.jpg Industrial homogenizers provide large-scale mixing and particle size reduction for products that are being manufactured to consumers. Dispersions, solutions made of small solid particles mixed into a liquid phase, frequently comprise these products. As such, an industrial homogenizer is considered an ideal process for synthesis of dispersions.

Keep reading to learn about specific ways this process can maximize the efficiency of its dispersions.

Decreased Particle Size for Enhanced Function

The size of the particles comprising a dispersion have a major say in its ability to function effectively. Smaller particle size is desirable, as it allows the product to perform more effectively, efficiently, and safely. For example, the industrial homogenizer from BEE International Technologies touts unmatched particle size reduction, in that it can achieve 100 nanometers or less. This capability is unique among even the highest quality homogenizers on the market, and their products should be your first visit along the search for an industrial homogenizer.

Increased Chemical Stability

Because a dispersion consists of two immiscible liquids, its synthesis process needs to be able to yield a stable product that won’t separate over time. Industrial homogenizers use high shear and other mechanical forces that allow for powerful mixing; it is so powerful, in fact, that it can create chemical stability among otherwise incompatible ingredients. Lotions, ointments, milk, and cheese spreads are just a handful of products that benefit from this characteristic.

Uniform Consistency & Size

Critical to product appearance, stability, shelf life, safety, efficacy, and digestibility is uniformity. As such, this quality can have a significant impact on the product’s overall quality and consumer appeal. Uniformity, in terms of consistency and size, can be accomplished by using an industrial homogenizer. Its ability to blend, cut, and macerate a sample makes it preferable over most other blending methods on the market. (1)

Product Recommendation: BEEI Industrial Homogenizer

Indicted for its ability to achieve impressive particle size reduction, the BEEI industrial homogenizer sets an impressive standard for the homogenization equipment industry. Their homogenizers contain proprietary technology as well as a proprietary pumping system that allows for tighter end products and a constant system, and their homogenizer operating pressure ranges up to the highest available in few passes.
