Operational and constructional details are given of an apparatus which permits simultaneous enzyme extraction from up to 16 cell samples under standardized conditions. The main advantages of the method are: (a) individual samples remain in the same container throughout the whole operation; (b) the samples can be stirred continuously and uniformly during extraction; (c) rapid changes of extractant are facilitated by a simple draining operation; (d) the extraction temperature can be strictly controlled. The method is rapid, efficient, and reproducible in extracting a number of enzymes from cultured rose cells. Other uses of the apparatus are discussed, particularly in relation to the extraction of protein, nucleic acids, and some low molecular weight materials.
