Cell Rupture, Disruption, Lysis are methods for disrupting cell membranes to release biological molecules whilst maintaining intracellular contents integrity and allowing for easiest downstream purification and processing. Learn more below.

Cell Disruption / Lysis

The apparatus used for cell disruption is often referred to as a 'French pressure cell press', or 'French Press'. Our 'Stansted' range of 'Benchtop' Cell Disruptors provide an industry-leading, powerful and extremely user friendly replacement for the French ® pressure cell system with capabilities for batch and continuous operation.

Our very high pressure performance up to 58,000 psi (4,000 bar) ensure our systems can handle the toughest cells while a versatile range of flexible lysing valves ensure finely controlled operation even when working the softest.

Common Applications include:


Yeasts (s cerivises, Pichia)


Mamalllian cells


Staph a.

CBD / Cannabinoids

... and many others

Our scalable technology offer practical processing from 1ml, through bench top, pilot and production systems with flow rate in excess of 1000 l/hr.
