A detailed investigation of microbial cell disruption by hydrodynamic cavitation for selective product release

Includes bibliographical references. === Hydrodynamic cavitation is a novel method for microbial cell disruption, mediated by intense pressure fluctuations caused by cavity oscillation and collapse. Selective release of intracellular microbial products is desirable to reduce the cost involved in the...
