Utrasonic topic: "Ultrasonic Cell Disruption"
Cell disruption is a technique or process used to release and isolate biological molecules from inside a cell. Ultrasonication is a highly efficient method to perforate and disrupt cell walls and membranes so that the intracellular material and the targeted biomolecules are released into the solvent. As a non-thermal, mild , yet highly efficient technique, ultrasonic disruptors are used in lab and industry to lyse cells and to produce superior extracts. Ultrasonic cell disruptors are used to prepare DNA and RNA as well as to extract bioactive compounds such as vitamins, polyphenols or natural pigments.
