Introducing the Multi Lab Scientific (MLS)

The Multi Lab Scientific (MLS) revolutionizes lab-scale wet mass granulation, extrusion and spheronization with the introduction of digital operation and automatic data capture.

With a digital touchscreen interface, easy to program recipe management software, microscope imaging and data collection functionality, the new MLS simplifies the user experience whilst providing important data to inform your research and development programs.

Digital Recipe Management & Automatic Control 

Digital recipe management software and automatic control sets the new MLS apart.

Experiment recipes can be programmed using the digital touchscreen, or wireless keyboard. The recipe can then be started and the MLS will perform the recipe automatically, while collecting and saving data about the formulation. Experiments can be paused, restarted or abandoned at any point using the on-screen manual override controls.

To maintain data integrity and support GLP requirements, a recipe locks once an experiment has been run against it and cannot be edited. The same experiment can either be re-run exactly for validation purposes, or the recipe can be cloned and edited to improve the outcome.

Manual start/stop operation remains a prominent operational feature with manual RPM increase and decrease functionality. 

Quicker, More Informed Decisions

The new MLS provides onscreen graphs for quick comparison across iterations. It also records experiment data and saves the information to a data file for each experiment.

Data files are easily exported for review, comparison, and analysis providing you with deeper insight into your ideal formulation parameters.

No More Reliance on Handwritten Notes

With recipe management and automatic data recording you can say goodbye to handwritten, timestamped notes. This feature not only saves you time but also ensures the integrity of your data to support GLP requirements within pharmaceutical settings.

Effortless Repeatability 

Achieve reliable repeatability across multiple iterations by re-running experiments with the same parameters making repeatability steps effortless. Validating your formulation couldn't be simpler.


Alternatively, existing recipes can be cloned and adjusted to improve the finished formulation.

Safety at the Heart of the Design

The single safety guard, hinged for convenience, is fitted with a high-integrity safety device preventing the machine from operating until the guard is properly in place. A simple, quick release mechanism allows the guard to be easily removed for cleaning. 

Innovative, Tool-Less Technology

Ease of use is central to the MLS design, with all attachments being quick and simple to attach and remove. Locator pins and clever design means that it is impossible to fit the attachments incorrectly, limiting damage from accidental misuse.

The Smallest Variance is Magnified at Scale 

Lab machines must consistently provide reliable and repeatable results to ensure accurate scale-up programs. Regular, proactive maintenance and the immediate replacement of worn parts is essential to achieve this - as well as to comply with GLP requirements.

Keep your results accurate and your research on target by purchasing a Caleva Essentials Spares Pack with your new machine. Add-on packs are also available for ongoing maintenance.
