Mechanical methods of cell disruption

Lab Manager

Methods for cell disruption fall under two broad categories: mechanical methods and non-mechanical methods

Scientists can disrupt their cells mechanically using a rotor-stator, a simple mortar and pestle, a blender, beads, microwaves, freeze-thaw cycles, sonication, or a liquid homogenizer.
