soniccatch exploits so-called acoustic radiation forces exerted on particles in suspension. A ultrasonic wave is emitted from a transducer. Together with the reflected wave a standing wave is built up, which catches the particles starting at 1 µm (crystals, cells, dirt, oil-droplets etc.) orders them in a repeating pattern of agglomerations. The forces can as well be used to clean smooth sensor surfaces.

The add-on soniccatch works with various kinds of probes.
