The fully automated formalin mixing and dispensing station is the top solution for contact-free dilution of formaldehyde in modern laboratories!
Especially in human and veterinary medicine, formaldehyde is used as preservative for biological samples making it one of the most frequently used chemicals in pathologies. With every breath, laboratory staff takes up the harmful vapors of the carcinogenic chemical. We have developed a fully automated formalin mixing and dispensing system for contact-free formalin mixing to reduce the contact between laboratory staff and formalin to a minimum which at the same time also significantly decreases formalin contamination in laboratories.
Thanks to its compact design, the formalin mixing and dispensing station AFMDS-100 is also suitable for small laboratories. All operations such as preparing a 3.7% standard formalin solution for tissue sample fixation or a customized solution with variable quantities of formaldehyde, water and a buffer solution are controlled through one single surface. The integrated microprocessor allows you to safe and recall your settings for later purposes. After having entered the desired mixing ratio through the menu, the liquids are then automatically blended together in the generously proportioned 100 liters tank. Additionally, the remaining solution is blended automatically 6 times a day to prevent salts and crystals from settling.
The prepared mixture can be drained directly from a tap at the device or transferred to multiple remote stations that can be up to 200 meters away – a particularly interesting feature for laboratories with working stations in different rooms. The integrated pump enables you to dispense the exact quantity of the prepared formalin solution without dripping or leaking.
On the technical side, exhaust and ventilation technology has never been more important than now, especially energy recovery and filtration of pollutants play a main role in pathologies. This is why the formalin mixing and dispensing station can be easily connected to the on-site ventilation system or operated through eco-friendly activated carbon filters to ensure that all vapors are vacuumed away safely and efficiently. Electronic and mechanical safety precautions keep liquids from overflowing within the tank to guarantee the utmost safety while the formalin mixing and dispensing station is in use.
