Output Frequency

Output frequency is fixed at precisely 1 MHz for optimised and reproducible penetration of ultrasound through tissue culture vessels and tissue-based targets.

Ultrasound Power/Density Options

Ultrasound power density/intensity options between 0 and 5 W/cm2 with adjustments of 0.1 W/cm2.

Duty Cycle Range

A wide range of duty cycles ranging from 5 – 100% in 5% increments and emitting at a pulse frequency of 100 Hz.

Automated Treatment Control Time

Automated control of treatment time that may be adjusted in seconds up to a treatment time of 90 seconds and thereafter in minutes up to a treatment time of 60 minutes.

Water-sealed Ultrasound head

The ultrasound head is water-sealed and compatible with operational immersion in liquid.

Pre-programmed Treatment Parameters

Supplied with 10 Operating Programs, 5 of which are pre-programmed to the appropriate treatment parameters to achieve optimal ultrasound-mediated transfection with the SONIDEL STK® 10 Positive Control Transfection Kit.   The other 5 programs may be adjusted to the specific conditions chosen by the operator

Ultrasound Dosage Feedback Control

The ultrasound head is equipped with a feedback control that automatically switches off the timer if contact with the target and transmission of ultrasound to the target is compromised.  In this case the timer countdown mechanism will cease at the precise time contact was compromised and an audible alarm will sound.

Custom Features Available

Custom features may be supplied on demand.



Frequency: Continuous and pulsed ultrasound at an optimally pre-set precise frequency of 1 MHz.
Display: Intensity in W/cm² (SATP*)
Contact control threshold: 65 %
Treatment time display and control buttons: 0 – 90 seconds and then switches to minutes (2-60), coupled to contact control.  For enhanced operator control and feedback, the time display will stop counting down if adequate acoustic ultrasound contact with the target is compromised.  This allows the operator to identify the precise time to which the target was exposed to ultrasound in the event of a failure in contact between the ultrasound head and the target
