Esr-Spectroscopic Examinations of Ultrasonicated Blood

In connection with examinations of the disruption of formed blood constituents ultrasound was applied to the disintegration — starting with investigations on ultrasonic hemolysis. We used a 20 KHz tube swinger with a power factor of 300 W/cm2, that was developed by the Institute of Applied Biophysics at the University of Halle. When whole blood was sounded by a power factor of 200 W/cm2 a complete destruction of cellular elements resulted within a period of 15 seconds, as was shown by an examination through a microscope. It was of interest whether detectable changes in the molecular region were induced by the sounding.
