In some instances it was possible to extract IDID off the injectors by sonicating the parts in 4 ml of a 1:1 methanol / dicholoromethane mixture.
Before the DLS measurements were carried out, nanoparticles were ultrastabily suspended in ethanol solution by sonicating for 2 h in order to disperse the particles within the solution.
Standard solutions were prepared by weighing accurate weight of 30 mg of menthol working standards into 50 mL volumetric flask, adding 25 mL of ethanol, and sonicating for 5 minutes.

After briefly homogenizing, sonicating, and centrifuging at 4[degrees]C for 30 min, the supernatant was collected, and 50 [micro]g of the lysate of each group was loaded onto a SDS-PAGE and transferred onto NC membranes and revealed with antiPCNA rabbit monoclonal antibody (1: 1000) (Proteintech, USA).
Sample homogenates were prepared by adding 250 [micro]l of ultrapure water to the Eppendorf tubes containing a single hatchling, then sonicating the contents for 20 to 30 seconds, using a Sanyo Soniprep 150 disintegrator fitted with an exponential probe (Sanyo, Canton, MA).
Cell lysis was performed via physical disruption by sonicating the cells in ultrasonic water bath for 2 minutes.
A 63 [micro]m mesh sieve was used and meiofauna were extracted using the methodology of resuspension-decantation (Wieser, 1960) after sonicating the sediment for 10 s (Thiel et al, 1975).
Cells were collected by centrifugation, resuspended in the sonicating buffer (140 mM NaCl, 2.7 mM KC1, 10 mM [Na.sub.2]HP[O.sub.4], 1.8 mM K[H.sub.2]P[O.sub.4], pH7.3), and disrupted by sonication.
Their findings show that thermal sonicating technology causes weakening of the cell by forming cavitation in the cellular structure and disruption and breakdown of cellular materials, formation of pores, lack or clumping of cellular material, breakdown of cell membrane, and inactivation of the target microorganism.
