The Bowl Focused Ultrasonicators (BoFU 100) use a high-frequency co-focused ultrasound system to efficiently concentrate acoustic energy into the test sample. The BoFU system, by adjusting the operation mode of the ultrasonic generator, provides shear force that meets the needs of genomics and proteomics research. The entire shearing process is temperature-controllable, has no sample contact, and generates no noise. BoFU eliminates errors introduced by manual operation, improves repeatability, enhances efficiency, and provides standardized results.

Introduction to Technical Principles
The BoFU ultrasonic system utilizes advanced co-focusing technology to precisely focus high-frequency, short-wavelength sound waves onto the sample, resulting in a highly controllable sample preparation process. High-frequency focused sound waves create a localized high-pressure zone in the target area, generating a controlled pressure flux and acoustic field. Under high-intensity 'dosing,' cavitation bubbles are formed, which shear the sample.
Traditional probe-type or tank-type ultrasonic generators use low-frequency, divergent sound wave energy within the range of human hearing. Unfocused sound wave energy dissipates rapidly and converts into thermal energy (the first law of thermodynamics) during this process. The quick dissipation of low-frequency sound energy leads to reduced efficiency, requiring a large amount of sound energy to achieve the desired effects. The excess energy produces heat that can cause significant damage to the sample's structure.
Probe-type ultrasonic generators come into direct contact with the sample, allowing for more energy to be concentrated on the sample compared to tank-type ultrasonic generators. However, direct contact with small sample volumes can lead to sample cross-contamination and tip corrosion, reducing ultrasonic efficiency. Tank-type ultrasonic generators separate the sample from the energy source but require more energy input than probe-type ultrasonic generators, causing greater heat damage to the samples.
