There are a number of available methods for releasing cell contents
A variety of tools are available to help researchers release the contents of their cells. Methods for cell disruption fall under two broad categories: mechanical methods and non-mechanical methods.
Scientists can disrupt their cells mechanically using a rotor-stator, a simple mortar and pestle, a blender, beads, microwaves, freeze-thaw cycles, sonication, or a liquid homogenizer.
