Cell disruption plays a crucial role across multiple sectors, such as biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, food processing, and cosmetics. The purpose of cell disruption is to break down cells to release their contents, which can then undergo further processing or analysis.
The choice of equipment for cell disruption is contingent upon the cell type and the expected results. High-pressure homogenizers, ultrasonic processors, bead mills, and mechanical grinders are among the standard devices used in the industry. Each of these tools has its strengths and weaknesses concerning cell disruption.
