Q1: What is mini handheld ultrasonic homogenizer?
A1: A mini handheld ultrasonic homogenizer is a laboratory instrument used to disrupt, emulsify, and disperse samples in a variety of applications, such as cell disruption, nanoparticle synthesis, and homogenization of biological and chemical samples.
Q2: What are the three types of homogenizer?
A2: The three main types to consider when looking for the right homogenizer for your lab are: pressure, mechanical and ultrasonic homogenizers. They range in size from small handheld homogenizers to large industrial size homogenizers.
Q3: What is the working principle of ultrasonic homogenizer?
A3: Basically, an ultrasonic homogenizer has a tip which very rapidly vibrates, causing bubbles in the surrounding solution to rapidly form and collapse. This creates shear and shock waves which tear apart cells and particles.
Tips: Is a sonicator a homogenizer?
Ultrasonic homogenizers, commonly referred to as "sonicators", disrupt tissues and cells through cavitation and ultrasonic waves. Basically, an ultrasonic homogenizer has a tip which very rapidly vibrates, causing bubbles in the surrounding solution to rapidly form and collapse.
