Sonicators are powerful pieces of liquid processing equipment. Using ultrasonic vibrations, they are able to process or mix samples quickly and effectively. The vibrations produced by the probes cause cavitation in liquids, the formation and violent collapse of microscopic bubbles. The collapse of thousands of bubbles creates a tremendous amount of energy in the cavitation field, therefore processing samples quick and effectively. While in use, the equipment can create uncomfortable levels of noise. That is why we recommend purchasing a sound enclosure with your unit. Ultrasonic liquid processing equipment is commonly used in biotech, pharmaceutical, chemical, environmental, industrial, and precision cleaning applications. They are most popularly used for applications such as nanoparticle dispersion, cell lysis, homogenization, and creating emulsions. All sonication equipment from QSonica is backed by a 2 year warranty. Selection guide and product literature available.
