Branson 101-063-963R Ultrasonics™ Sonifier™ SFX150 Cell Disruptor , 150 Watts, 240V
- Includes Power Supply, 40kHz Converter, 3.17mm (0.125 in.) Microtip, Power Cord, Manual, Wrench Set
In operation, Sonifier SFX Series monitors ongoing processes on a scrollable, digital screen, providing continuous updates of key variables including power level, energy usage, sample temperature, and experiment progress.
For assured repeatability and precision on a greater scale, the SFX Series enables users to create and store up to 20 sampleprocessing programs. Program parameters include continuous or pulsed ultrasonics; time, energy, or temperature control modes; pulse on-time/energy, off-time and total on-time/energy; or amplitude as a percentage. Sonifier® SFX150 Cell Disruptors and Homogenizers
Branson’s exclusive handheld converter is designed with the user in mind. The handheld converter offers an ergonomic grip for comfort and control, and a recessed pushbutton and LED indicator for assured operation.
In Energy Mode, the SFX Series power supply manages the processing cycle to deliver a precise, user-determined input of ultrasonic energy (measured in joules), either continuously or in individual pulses. The SFX Series automatically compensates for any variability, extending or shortening the cycle as needed to deliver the precise energy output
The Sonifier® SFX150 is part of the new lineup of Sonifiers from Branson, designed to bring the industry’s most
advanced sample-processing capabilities to your laboratory. Geared toward low-volume samples ranging from 0.2 to 150 mL, the Sonifier SFX150 delivers up to 150 watts of power. And at 40 kHz, it’s quiet enough to operate on a lab bench without a sound enclosure. Because it is available with either a conventional or a handheld converter, you can use the SFX150 in a stack configuration to process longer-duration samples, or process samples quickly by hand using the comfortable, ergonomically-designed handheld converter.

- In-process feedback displays experiment progress together with key variables such as power level, energy usage, and elapsed time.
- Advanced energy control mode delivers precise energy input in continuous or pulse modes.
- Programmable parameters include continuous or pulsed ultrasonics; time, energy, or temperature* control modes; pulse on-time/energy, off-time and total time/energy; or amplitude as a percentage
Cell Disruption & Lysis
Efficiently break down cell membranes with the precise energy levels required for your sample, without overheating.
Dispersal of Nanoparticles
Deliver the energy needed to overcome strong adhesive forces and evenly disperse nanoparticles into liquid carriers for a variety of applications.
ChIP Assay & Processing of DNA/Proteins
Release DNA and proteins from cells and apply the energy needed to shear them into fragments for purification and analysis.
Emulsification & Homogenization
Use the most efficient method to quickly and reliably create perfectly uniform preparations without risk of overheating.
Acceleration of Reactions
Use ultrasonics to accelerate chemical reactions through a variety of processes, including microcleaning of catalyst surfaces and acoustic cavitation that adds energy to the reaction.
Leaching & Extraction
Use the shear and cavitation forces of ultrasonics to improve the speed and efficiency of catalytic extraction while reducing solvent use.
Create homogenous mixes without the complexity and inconsistent results of a mechanical system.
Remove dissolved gases through acoustic cavitation that draws the gases into vacuum bubbles, allowing them to float to the top of the liquid for easy removal
