Cup Horns offer indirect sonication and function as high intensity ultrasonic water baths. Multiple samples can be processed in sealed tubes or vials eliminating aerosols and cross contamination. Cup Horns are ideal for sterile or pathogenic sample processing and enable multiple tubes to be processed at one time.
The horn is mounted within an acrylic cup and the cup is filled with water. Sample tubes are placed in the tube rack (included) above the horn. Cavitation is produced in the water, processing the samples within the tubes. Sonication generates heat so inlets for cooling are located on each side of the cup. A recirculating chiller is recommended for maintaining both the water temperature and water level within the Cup Horn.
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.
An 8-tube rack for 1.5ml polystyrene tubes is included with the cup horn. Other tube racks are available for purchase here.Qsonica 2014-06-17
