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).
