Patient discussion about sonication

Q. do you know what are the pros and cons of the Sonic toothbrush from Oral B (electric tooth brush)? last night, my best friend raved about it for a whole hour. My dentist told me to use a soft brush (number 35) to clean my teeth and that the electric brushes are a bit over rated. My friend specifically told me about the Sonic product and told me that it also makes his teeth whiter. I wanted to know if anybody has any knowledge or experience from first hand about this product or any good information about it.

A. Thank you for the frank answer. I wonder if I can find a really soft electric toothbrush

The effect of ultrasound irradiation on the hydrolysis of [gamma]-oryzanol was investigated using low-frequency (horn type, 20 kHz) and highfrequency (planar type, 200 kHz) ultrasonicators. The experiments were conducted by ultrasonic power of 50 W at temperature from 30 to 60[degrees]C.
Either drug-free or drug-loaded MGICs were dispersed in deionized water to generate a series of dispersions with concentrations of 0.1, 0.08, 0.04, 0.02, and 0.01 mg x [mL.sup.-1], and each was sonicated for 3 min in a 75 T VWR Ultrasonicator (120 W, 45 kHz).

The lysed sample solution was sonicated for 10-15 sec to remove the viscosity by using an ultrasonicator, and the whole cell lysate was acquired by boiling at 100 [degrees]C for 5 min.
Ultrasonicator can finally be used so to achieve the desired size range for dispersed globules.
Cell line DNA was sheared to approximately 200 bp using a Covaris M220 focused ultrasonicator (Thermo Fisher Scientific) and subjected to a double size selection to mimic cell-free DNA using AMPURE XP beads (Beckman Coulter).
An ultrasonicator (JY96-IIN, Ningbo Xingzhi Bioscience and Biotechnology Co., Ltd, Ningbo, China) was used, which provided a frequency of 20 kHz and a horn tip of 6 mm.
The required quantity of ZnO nanoparticles was dispersed into water and sonicated using an ultrasonicator for 2 h to break the agglomerated particles and to facilitate the homogeneous mixture of ZnO nanoparticles and water, called ZnO/water nanofluid as shown in Fig 4.
Then, these mixtures were sonicated for 60min at 25[degrees]C in an ultrasonicator water bath (Power sonic 505, Hwa Shin Technology Co., Seoul, Korea).
MWNTs were initially dispersed in de-ionized water by ultrasonication (Ultrasonicator, Vibronics, India, frequency 20 KHz; sonication time: 10 min).
All samples were ultrasonicatically agitated in 1700 mL in filtered cold tap water with 5 drops of Triton X-114 surfactant with a Hielscher 400s ultrasonicator equipped with a H14 sonotrode operated at 45 % amplitude and 0.7 duty cycle.
