The homogeniser includes a housing, a drive mechanism located within the housing and a cutting blade attached to the drive mechanism. At least part of the drive mechanism is reversibly movable within the housing such that the cutting blade can located within the body of the instrument or moved automatically such that the blade at least partially projects outside the housing and thereby facilitates cleaning of the housing.
AgResearch is looking for licensing opportunities for this technology.
The instrument is protected by patent.
