One-Step Microplate Sonication: Misonix 431-T Tray Horn

Misonix' 431-T Tray Horn Have you ever wished you could be in two places at once or that you had more than two hands? While clever tissue engineering and cloning techniques present a scientifically viable albeit disconcerting possibility, most scientists look to instrumentation for solutions when they have multiple, time-consuming tasks to perform simultaneously.

Misonix' 431-T Tray Horn
Have you ever wished you could be in two places at once or that you had more than two hands? While clever tissue engineering and cloning techniques present a scientifically viable albeit disconcerting possibility, most scientists look to instrumentation for solutions when they have multiple, time-consuming tasks to perform simultaneously. Misonix Inc., a New York sonication equipment manufacturer, has introduced the new 431-T Tray Horn that can help researchers kill 96 birds with one stone.

Innovative applications of ultrasound technology have increased productivity and accelerated reactions in ways that previously were not thought possible. From disruption of cell membranes to uniform homogenization of solutions, ultrasonics has been established as an important tool in the biological research laboratory. However, as laboratories become increasingly focused on high throughput and testing of hundreds, sometimes thousands, of samples, researchers are becoming overburdened with repetitive tasks and prolonged incubation periods.
