  • Temperature Control: A programmable pulsation mode allows for heat dissipation during sonication. All digital sonicator models (from 200watt and up) offer temperature control to prevent sample overheating during sample preparation. A pluggable temperature sensor measures the temperature in the sample continuously and sends the information to the ultrasonicator. In accordance with your set temperature limits, the ultrasonic homogenizer automatically pauses when the upper temperature limit is reached and continues to sonicate as soon as the sample has lowered its temperature to lower limit of the set temperature delta.
  • Data Logging and Documentation: Maintain traceability and documentation of all your experiments with built-in data logging features. All digital sonicators feature a built-in SD-card for automatic data protocoling as soo as you switch-on your homogenizer. Amplitude, energy input, temperature, pressure, date and time are written as a CSV file onto the SD-card. This facilitates to maintain quality standards and to fulfil Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).

    Ultrasonic Flow Cell Reactors for Larger Volume Processing

    Probe-type sonicator UP400St with flow cell reactor FC22K is a powerful lab homogenizer.
    Hielscher ultrasonic laboratory devices can run continuously in 24/7 operation without overheating. Thereby, Hielscher sonicators can be reliably used for the continuous sonication using a flow cell in inline processing. By using the laboratory devices in combination with flow cell reactors, you can comfortably process larger sample volumes. In this case, the liquid is pumped into the reactor made of glass or stainless steel. For example, a UP400St can process approx. 10 to 50 litres per hour. In the flow cell, the sample it is exposed to defined intense sonication before it reaches the exit of the reactor cell. In order to cool heat-sensitive material during sonication, the flow cells are equipped with a cooling jacket to increase heat dissipation.

    The VialTweeter is a unique ultrasonic system for the simultaneous sonication of up to 10 vials under the exactly same conditions without cross-contamination.

    Homogenizers Designed for the Lab

    Hielscher ultrasonic laboratory devices are designed for the lab. They are very simple to setup. The handheld and stand-mounted devices combine ultrasonic generator (power supply) and transducer (converter) in a single housing. This saves desktop space and weight. Hielscher is the only manufacturer of handheld ultrasonic processors. The only plug to be connected is the main power plug, that fits into standard 115V~ or 230V~ outlets. The operation of the ultrasonic homogenizers is very simple. The devices are tuned to the optimal resonant frequency automatically, so there is no need for manual adjustments. The ultrasonic amplitude is adjustable from 20 through 100%. Alternatively to the continuous operation a cycle of intense sonication bursts can be a adjusted, e.g. for the sonication of heat-sensitive tissue.

    Accuracy for Reproducible Results

    Hielscher ultrasonicators can be remotely controlled via browser control. Sonication parameters can be monitored and adjusted precisely to the process requirements.For the preparation of samples as well as for the development of new applications, it is important to have a good control over all sonication parameters in order to obtain reproducible results. Hielscher ultrasonic devices allow you to control the amplitude of sonication. This is the most important sonication parameter. The mechanical amplitude is monitored constantly in the device to eliminate any deviation from the adjusted value. This makes the amplitude independent of other factors, such as immersion depth, liquid temperature or viscosity. Therefore, you can repeat each sonication by selecting the same amplitude again.

    Sound Protection Boxes for Noise Reduction

    Sound protection box for sound enclosure and noise reduction during sonication processes
    When applied to liquids, ultrasound causes cavitation. The cavitational noise is in the human audible range. Sound protection boxes are available for the ultrasonic laboratory devices to reduce the noise emission to more convenient levels. This is recommended for typical laboratory environments. The sound protection boxes include a stand pole and an adjustable table (acrylic glass) to hold the sample. Click here to read more about ultrasonic noise emission!
