Microtips for Sonifier® S-250/450 and SFX250/550

Category Homogenizer Accessories
Manufacturer Branson

Microtip probes are designed to process samples contained in small diameter vessels at extremely high intensity. There are two configurations:

Tapered Microtips are recommended for processing yeast, spores, fungi, muscle, connective tissue, and similar samples. They screw into 1/2" horns with tapped ends.

Tip Diameter: 1/8" (3 mm) 3/16" (5 mm) 1/4" (6.5 mm)
Intensity: 116 - 494 59.5 - 302 59.5 - 247
Amplitude (µm): Ultra High Very High High
Sample Volume: 0.25 - 10 ml 5 - 20 ml 10 - 50 ml

Double Stepped Microtips are recommended for processing cells with have a relatively low resistance to breakage, such as HeLa cells, blood cells, and cells in most tissue cultures.  They consist of a coupler and a stepped tip and screw directly into the converter (they do not require a separate horn). They have a lower amplitude than the tapered tip but are capable of reaching into small diameter vessels of greater depth and can process volumes as small as 0.1 ml.

Tip Diameter: 1/8" (3 mm)
Intensity: Very High
Amplitude (µm): 64 - 247
Sample Volume: 0.1 - 10 ml


PLEASE NOTE: Do not operate microtips at a setting higher than 7 on any Sonifier® model.  Do not operate in air.  Either may cause damage or breakage to an ultrasonic microtip.
