UP100H ultrasonic processor
The UP100H ultrasonic processor from Hielscher Ultrasonics enables the sonication of small and medium-sized laboratory samples.
This compact yet powerful homogeniser is commonly used for sample preparation applications, including emulsifying, dispersing, dissolving and cell disruption.
The UP100H (100W, 30kHz) has the same compact and ergonomic design as the UP50H (50W, 30kHz) but it comes with twice the ultrasonic power, according to the company.
Weighing just 1.1kg, the ultrasonic generator and the transducer are combined in one unit, so connecting cables is straightforward.
One power supply cable is all that is required.
This device is most suitable for the ultrasonication of very small and medium-sized samples.
With the use of the MS10 sonotrode, the range of applications expands to the sonication of volumes of up to 500ml.
Therefore, this ultrasonic device is mainly used for the preparation of samples in the laboratory, such as: emulsifying (the mixing of immiscible liquids); dispersing (the mixing of powders into liquids); homogenising and disintegration; cell disruption (lysis) and extraction; the de-agglomeration of nanomaterials; and degassing.
Utilised in combination with the D7K flow cell, the UP100H enables the user to sonicate material in continuous flow, such as at 10ml/min to 100ml/min.
By this, you can simulate continuous sonication processes in the smallest scale.
As the UP100H can be operated 24 hours per day, seven days a week, this setup could process up to 140 litres per day, depending on the application.
The optional PC control may be helpful if a test record is necessary or to optimise processes.
The UP100H is often used for general feasibility studies.
For this, a small sample volume, say 5ml, is put into a small vial and is exposed to intense sonication for a long time.
Since ultrasonic power is put into the sample, the liquid will heat up quickly, unless cooled by a water bath.
As the heat can dissipate to the cooling bath, the sample can be sonicated for a longer time, say 20 minutes.
