Cell lysis, tissue disruption and homogenization are common Sonicator applications. The ultrasonic energy output of each Sonicator model is adjustable and sonication parameters can be optimized according to your process requirements. Amplitude (intensity) can be lowered in order to gently process fragile cells, prevent organelles from being damaged or decrease degradation of enzymes. Amplitude can also be increased to powerful levels to process difficult cell types (i.e. E.coli, yeast, algae, heart/skin tissue).
