mode but at a lower pressure. The degree of disruption and consequently the amount of protein released will inlluence the ease of subsequent separation of the product from the cell debris in high-pressure homoge-nizers and bead mills (Agerkvist and Enfors, 1990). A careful balance must therefore be made between percentage release of product and the difficulty and cost of further product purification.
