IUL celebrates 30 years of the launch of the first gravimetric dilutor!

IUL Instruments, along with Neutec Group, commemorates the 30th anniversary of the design, manufacturing, and marketing of the first gravimetric diluter. It was launched in 1990 under the name “Dosi Dilutor”, receiving its name from its ability to dose, and highlighting the precision and accuracy of the instrument. 

The second dilutor was launched in 1995 with the name Delta Dilutor, “Delta” in recognition of its shape. Eleven years later the third generation of dilutors was released

The heart of IUL’s gravimetric dilutors is a weighing cell. Its functionality allows to monitor the weight continuously on the platform and to optimize the liquid dispensing through the discharge pump. 

Gravimetric dilutors weigh samples and dispense an accurate amount of liquid, diluting the sample to be analyzed to a configurable dilution factor. In gravimetric dilutions samples are solid, semi-solid, or pasty and are prepared to later determine the number of microorganisms/weight of the sample.   

Smart Dilutor, IUL’s third generation 

The third generation of IUL’S gravimetric dilutors became the solution for laboratories in need of increasing their sample processing capacity and traceability of their gravimetric dilutions and dispensings. More precise and accurate results were achieved, as well as robustness with the Smart Dilutor. 

Since then, the Smart Dilutor has evolved to Smart Dilutor W. The Smart Dilutor W was launched to provide reliable solutions in the automation of Quality Control laboratories. IUL designed and manufactured the first gravimetric dilutor awaiting to be homogenized in Masticator blenders, IUL laboratory mixer, the perfect partner to speed sample preparation before performing corresponding microbiological control. 

Among the most noteworthy features of the latest dilutor, ease of use stands out most. Smart Dilutor W is controlled from a touch screen with a fast calibration, flexibility, and adaptable to many quantities and types of samples. Its advanced traceability features can connect with a barcode reader and to a printer. 

The importance of R&D

R&D is the heart of IUL and allows to adapt to new projects, providing innovative solutions to the IUL’s community and to respond quicker to changes that may arise during the process. 

Research, development and innovation, in addition to increasing the added value of the offer, IUL generates competitiveness while it develops new lines of business. 

IUL Instruments, automation solution for laboratories 

Since 1987, IUL has been designing, manufacturing, and marketing automation solutions for microbiology laboratories. Its goal lies in providing more comfortable and safe microbiological control for industry and healthcare. 

IUL offers solutions adapted to projects that need a whole design and manufacturing process. IUL is specialized in microbiology laboratory equipment and image capture and processing, besides this, its products are designed for long-term use. 

IUL’s gravimetric dilutor is present on all continents. IUL shows strength and experience in a market where food, pharma and cosmetic industries are the main beneficiaries.
