Homogenisers Ultrasonic Cell Disruptors
The Vibra-Cell™ is a technologically advanced, high-intensity ultrasonic processor for high and low volume applications*. It can safely process a wide variety of organic and inorganic materials in applications such as cell disruption, sample preparation, homogenisation, disaggregation and sonochemical reactions. The system can vary the power output and constantly monitor both power (Watts) and energy (Joules). The microprocessor control with real time display gives digital accuracy and reproducible control of set and run parameters.

  • Automatic tuning eliminates need for constant adjustment
  • Automatic amplitude compensation ensures uniform tip excursion regardless of load conditions
  • Integrated temperature controller with user defined temperature limits precludes harmful overheating
  • Sealed, piezoelectric converter, Type PZT (Lead Zirconium Titanate) crystals
  • Titanium alloy (TI-6AL-4V) probes

The VCX models below include features for storage of up to 10 procedures and also Energy Set point where the ultrasonics are terminated when a preset desired amount of energy has been dispensed. In addition, there is an integrated temperature controller that automaticaly switches the processor off, if the sample reaches a preset limit (requires the optional temperature probe Cat No 432-0129 - see entry for 'Probes and accessories for Vibra-Cell™ ultrasonic processors').

Ordering information: For accessories for the Vibra-Cell™ processors please see separate entry ‘Probes and accessories for Vibra-Cell™ ultrasonic processors’.

Delivery information: Supplied complete with 1,8 m cable from converter, standard 13 mm probe (VCX 500 and VCX 750) or 25 mm (VCX 1500), tool kit and manual.

Caution: Note: Unless otherwise requested, 432-0138 is shipped wired for 117 volts, 50/60 Hz. For export, please specify voltage option required.
* Sample volumes for VCX 500 and VCX 750; from 250 µl to 1 litre on a batch basis and up to 20 litres/hour on a flow-through basis depending on choice of optional replacement probes.
For VCX 1500; up to 20 litres when used with a solid probe, Ø 25 mm, length 508 mm (please ask Avantor for details) and a mechanical mixer or stirrer.
** Optional probe required 432-0129.
Safety note: Never use a probe with a replacement tip with low surface tension liquids. Use a solid probe instead."
