How To Use a Carboy Mixer


Friday, May 01, 2020

For those in the biopharmaceutical industry, handling the preparation of large volumes of solutions comes with its fair share of challenges. A seamless process is crucial to the quality of the end product, and that means ensuring homogeneous mixing and blending with zero contamination. A balance of sanitation and efficiency is key, especially when it comes to mass production—and the mixing and blending equipment you use plays a significant role in this process.

How to use the mixer, agitator or tank

The best part of using a carboy mixer, agitator or tank is this: it doesn’t require a lengthy manual to figure out. In fact, it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3: add your ingredients, turn the mixer on, and pump them out—and just like that, you’ve simplified your mixing process. We promise, there’s no catch!
