As part of the Alibiotech CPER FEDER, the ICV acquired a One Shot Cell Disruptor from Constant Systems Ltd. This system allows it possible to quickly break small samples, whether they be liquid cultures, cell pellets, tissue or frozen samples. All microorganisms (lactic acid bacteria, yeasts, molds) can be broken easily thanks to this system of cellular disruption up to a pressure of 2700 bars. The break is reproducible regardless of the operator without raising the temperature of the sample. Its use can inactivate microbial cells, separate intracellular contents, recover DNA or recombinant proteins.
