Title
Low-frequency ultrasound in biotechnology: state of the art
Abstract

The use of low-frequency (10–60 kHz) ultrasound for enhancement of various biotechnological processes has received increased attention over the last decade as a rapid and reagentless method. Recent breakthroughs in sonochemistry have made the ultrasound irradiation procedure more feasible for a broader range of applications. By varying the sonication parameters, various physical, chemical and biological effects can be achieved that can enhance the target processes in accordance with the applied conditions. However, the conditions that have provided beneficial effects of ultrasound on bioprocesses are case-specific and are therefore not widely available in the literature. This review summarizes the current state of the art in areas where sonochemistry could be successfully combined with biotechnology with the aim of enhancing the efficiency of bioprocesses, including biofuel production, bioprocess monitoring, enzyme biocatalysts, biosensors and biosludge treatment.
