Can someone explain what's the difference between  tissue homogenisation 
techniques such as grinding, and sonication? What are their uses? Is 
sonication used mainly for disrupting cell walls whereas the mechanical 
based homogenisation techniques are usually for disruption  on a more 
"macro" level?
