ULTRASONICATOR: ULTRASONIC CELL DISRUPTOR

 

The device operates at a fundamental frequency of 20 kHz and the digital control allows for a precise process control and parameter measurement. The sonicator horn dimensions and the output control setting determine the amount of amplitude (tip movement) and the degree of ultrasonic activity produced in the liquid. Different   sizes and shapes of the horns/tips (made of titanium) enable handling of varying sample volumes. The device can be used for cell and tissue disruption, production of emulsions and dispersions, and breaking down of the aggregates (de-agglomerating solid particles).
