Cup Horns offer indirect sonication and function as high intensity ultrasonic water baths. Samples can be processed in sealed tubes or vials eliminating aerosols and cross contamination. Cup Horns are well-suited for processing of sterile, pathogenic, or toxic samples.
The horn is mounted within a glass cup and the cup is filled with water. A sample tube is placed in the water reservoir above the horn. Cavitation is produced in the water, processing the sample within the tube. Inlets for flow-through cooling are located on the side of the cup to disperse built-up heat during processing.
The Sound Enclosure is highly recommended for all Cup Horn users. In addition to reducing sonication noise to safe levels, it securely supports the Cup Horn in the proper position. The Sound Enclosure features ports on either side to allow coolant tubing to pass from the Cup Horn to a water source or pump system outside the box.Qsonica 2014-06-12
