The company incorporates the product into its Vascular Encapsulation Sonication Targeting (VESTTM) system that combines three FDA-approved elements: the Imagent drugs, conventional ultrasound, plus an approved cancer drug.
The suspension was kept under low sonication for 20 minutes, and then it was placed in an ice water bath for three minutes for cooling.
In the latter category is buzz pollination (or, to be fancy, "sonication").
Scientists at the University of Illinois examined how the sonication and freeze-drying processes would affect the encapsulation of DHA using soy protein and pea protein isolate.
In addition, technical limitations, including the presence of scar tissue, excessive abdominal subcutaneous fat, the distance between the skin and the fibroids, the distance between the sacral bone surface and the fibroids, and the bowel in the path of sonication, play a role in whether MRI-guided HIFU therapy is appropriate.
The molecular weight of nylon irregularly varied as the increase of sonication time, indicating the ultrasonic treatment could not only promote the degradation of amide groups, but also facilitate the condensation reaction between carboxyl groups and amino groups.
For this, two variables were tested: the volume of the extractor solvent HCl 0.1M (A) and the sonication time in the ultrasound apparatus (B) (Table 1).
Furthermore, the sonication with a high shear force disperses surface-modified nanoparticles in carrier liquids [11].
The resin containing MWCNTs was subjected to sonication. The dispersion status of MWCNTs in epoxy matrix at different time intervals is shown in Figures 2(a)-2(c).
Recently, we reported a one-pot method, using metallocene catalysts, to control PEMWCNT nanocomposite morphology by the sonication method [20].
[25] who presented a review on the possible degradative effects of sonication on food with high lipid contents and indicated the possible degradation of some compounds and changes to physiochemical qualities of some food products.
