Continuous Cell Disruption by Means of High-Pressure Homogenisation

High-pressure homogenisers are perfectly suitable for disrupting microorganisms. Inflexible microorganisms such as E. coli are well homogenised. The process of homogenisation then takes place after the bacteria concentrate is produced.

With high pressure (1,000 bar) and flow (1,000 l/h) the cells are continuously disrupted and collected in one of the harvest tanks. If cells are not entirely disrupted this process can be repeated for several times.

In the plant 2 homogenisers of the same construction type are available.
