I need to purchase a sonicating water bath attachment for our Fisher "sonic
dismembranator."  I don't want to pay $700 for it, though.  I need to place
a microfuge tube into the bath to disrupt mitochondria.  Do you have any
suggestions as to a cheaper solution?  Could I just place the macrotip into
a water bath, turn on the power, and place the tube into the same water
bath?  Is there anything else I could rig up?
