Sonication is the act of applying sound energy to agitate particles in a sample for various purposes such as cleaning, processing, homogenizing, emulsification, etc. Ultrasonic frequencies (>20 kHz) are usually used, leading to the process also being known as ultrasonication.
In the laboratory, it is usually applied using an ultrasonic bath or an ultrasonic probe, colloquially known as a sonicator. Branson Ultrasonics, a global leader in ultrasonic technology is now coming up with a new series of sonicators, the Branson SFX Series Ultrasonic Cell Disruptors. The new SFX series sonifiers have been enhanced on every aspect as functionality, efficiency, design and performance. Let’s take a quick look at these precious laboratory equipment.
All new SFX series are now offered with the below standard features;
- Energy Mode. In Energy Mode, the SFX Series power supply manages the processing cycle to deliver a precise, user-determined input of ultrasonic energy (measured in joules), either continuously or in individual pulses. The SFX Series automatically compensates for any variability, extending or shortening the cycle as needed to deliver the precise energy output.
- Process monitoring. In operation, Sonifier SFX Series monitors ongoing processes on a scrollable, digital screen, providing continuous updates of key variables including power level, energy usage, sample temperature, and experiment progress.
- Sample-processing programs. For assured repeatability and precision on a greater scale, the SFX Series enables users to create and store up to 20 sample processing programs. Program parameters include continuous or pulsed ultrasonics; time, energy, or temperature control modes; pulse on-time/energy, off-time and total on-time/energy; or amplitude as a percentage.
The new Branson SFX series are available in 3 different power and frequency options as 150 watts/40kHz, 250 watts/20kHz and 550 watts/20kHz. The SFX150 Series has the 150watt power output at 40kHz and available in two different configurations one with traditional converter and a 1/8″ microtip (Part No:101-063-962R (110V) or 101-063-963R (220V) and the other with handheld converter with 1/8″ micro tip (Part No:101-063-1096R (110V) or 101-063-1097R (220V) to process liquids from 0.2ml up to 150ml.
The Branson SFX250 is the model that has a 250 watts output at 20kHz frequency. This model comes with a 1/2 horn and it’s ready for operation to process liquids from 0.2ml-500ml (Part No:101-063-965R (110V) or 101-063-966R (220V)
And here comes Branson’s most powerful SFX SONIFIER ultrasonic cell disruptor with 550 watts output at 20kHz frequency. The Branson SFX550 with part number 101-063-969R (110V) or 101-063-969R (220V) comes with the 1/2″ horn or 3/4″ horn (Part No:101-063-968R (110V) or 101-063-970R (220V).

IKA HB 10 HAIZBAD Digital Heating Bath, 4068001
The digital display featured on IKA’s heating bath HB10 offers each user a high ease of operation. The temperature control can be adjusted with a micro controller. With the help of an infrared interface, the heating bath HB 10 digital can communicate with the rotary evaporator RV 10 digital and control. Additionally, it offers three selectable operating modes. These allow for:
A: clear regulation of all parameters
B: a fixable safety temperature setting avoids unintentional readjustments
C: fixable set and safety temperatures
Therefore, it is the first choice when it comes to “heating and tempering” in the lab and offers a heating power of 1350 watts. IKA’s heating bath HB 10 digital is suitable as a water or oil heating bath for the tempering of liquids.
It is particularly suited for use with IKA’s rotary evaporator RV 10. Here, the optimized bath shape is adapted to the evaporator flask’s geometry. This allows for quicker heating periods than with conventional products. Laterally arranged carrying handles allow for the heating bath’s safe handling and offer protection from burns.
In case of errors, an adjustable safety circuit switches the heating bath off permanently. If there is no more heating medium left in the bath, the circuit prevents further heating.
The heating bath HB 10 digital is designed with high-quality, recyclable materials and therefore contributes to resource-preserving production.
The heating bath HB 10 digital’s key characteristics are:
Water and oil heating bath for tempering of liquids
Heating power 1350 watts
Particularly suited for operation with the rotary evaporator RV 10
Optimized bath shape for quick heating
Integrated carrying handles for safe handling
Adjustable safety circuit, for a safe switch-off in the case of errors
