The Wiggens HG400 VW flapping homogeniser or Stomacher is ideal for the homogenisation of a wide range of fruit, vegetables, animal and fish tissue, or clinical samples in preparation for subsequent microbiological or toxicological analysis. The unit uses specialised single use, sterile filter bags to ensure sample integrity and to avoid contamination and also to separate fluids from solids resulting from the homogenisation process.

The HG400 VW utilizes two stainless steel paddles (flaps) driven by a quiet brushless motor to disrupt the sample. The sample bag is sealed under pressure at the top by the instrument's front door to avoid leakage. Blending power is adjustable and paddle speed can be adjusted between 20 and 600 strokes/min. The HG400 VW has a tempered glass viewing window to monitor the homogenisation process.
