Why Choose Our Systems?
Our systems offer reliable and consistent cell disruption via the application of a constant pressure throughout the entirety of the processed sample, made possible by our use of a hydraulic control system.
Once a sample is drawn into our high pressure cylinder, pressure is built until it reaches the value set by the user, at which point a piston forces the sample through a fixed orifice at high velocity before it impacts on a cooled heat exchange surface, after which it flows through an outlet for collection.
Our cell disruptors incorporate several different mechanisms of lysis to ensure maximum efficiency is achieved by a single pass wherever possible. These mechanisms are illustrated below.
