Ultrasonic homogenizers are commonly used to disrupt cells and tissues via sound waves and the cavitation that they cause. The homogenizer tip vibrates rapidly, creating bubbles that form and collapse. This action tears apart any cells or particles in the solution.
A homogenizer works by breaking or subdividing the dispersed components into smaller particles and then distributing them evenly throughout the mixture. The action created by the homogenizer continuously disrupts the formation of large particles due to immiscibility and precipitation.
An ultrasonic homogenizer consists of: A power generator and control ; A transducer or converter to change electric energy into high-frequency mechanical motion ; A probe or “horn,” typically made of titanium, which vibrates rapidly and longitudinally to transmit energy to the sample.
Its major applications are to Create emulsions ; Disperse nanoparticles ; Reduce the size of suspended particles ; Break apart cells and subcellular structures in suspension ; Shear DNA (beneficial for some applications).Basically, an ultrasonic homogenizer has a tip which very rapidly vibrates, causing bubbles in the surrounding solution to rapidly form and collapse. This creates shear and shock waves which tear apart cells and particles.
The Global Ultrasonic Homogenizer market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
