Focused-ultrasonication provides precise process control which is beneficial to a number of scientific disciplines in both advanced biological and chemical applications. The Covaris AFA process and its high level of experimental condition control enables processes to be developed or improved upon very quickly, easily, and reproducibly.
Covaris provides versatile tools for a broad range of applications.
Pre-analytical processes are increasingly recognized as the limiting factors for sensitivity and specificity of biomarker detection. This is especially relevant for highly advanced analytical methods such as next-generation sequencing or mass spectrometry.
Covaris Focused-ultrasonicator, with over 75 patents either granted or pending, has successfully demonstrated the ability to produce Formulations that are not possible using other methods, such as temperature or solvent sensitive liposomes, nanoemulsions, or nanoparticles.
The AFA process is performed in an isothermal, non-contact environment. Focused-ultrasonicators may be programmed for intensity, duration, and duty factor of these bursts, supporting a wide variety of applications, from gentle mixing to extreme compound reformatting and dissolution.
