Probe Options

Probes amplify and radiate the ultrasonic energy into the sample. All probes are fabricated from titanium alloy Ti-6Al-4V and are autoclavable. Each ultrasonic processor includes a standard probe which can be substituted for a different size or accessory if requested.

Cup Horn

The cup horn can process small samples in isolation without probe intrusion, removing the risk of cross contamination or aerosolization. This is especially useful when working with infectious materials.

The water-filled micro cup horn screws into the inverted converter in place of a probe. A tube containing the sample is placed inside the cup horn. The vibrations produced in the cup induce cavitation inside the tube. Inlet and outlet ports enable cooling water to be recirculated within the cup, inhibiting heat build-up during extended operation. A holder for 1.5mL tubes is included.

Outlet connects to 1/2" (13 mm) I.D. tubing.

Inlet connects to 3/8" (9.5 mm) I.D. tubing.

Only for VCX 130W models

Flow Cell

The continuous flow cell screws into the converter in place of the probe. This system is recommended for the treatment of low viscosity samples that require short processing times. The main body is glass and the probe and processing chamber are titanium. The volume of liquid needed to fill the chamber is 35mL.

Outlet connects to 1/2" (13 mm) I.D. tubing.

Inlet connects to 3/8" (9.5 mm) I.D. tubing.

ROSETTE GLASS COOLING CELLS
Rosette

The rosette is a glass cell that enables uniform treatment at low temperatures. Fill the rosette with your liquid sample and place it in an ice bath. The ultrasonic energy forces the sample to circulate under the probe and through the cooling arms.
