A method of isolation of rat liver cells and mitochondria suggesting tissue disaggregation by vibration has been proposed. Mitochondria obtained using vibration have better parameters of oxidative phosphorylation as compared to homogenization. Hepatocytes isolated by vibration had viability about 90%, as determined by trypan blue exclusion, and rates of respiration and xenobiotic metabolism comparable to that observed by the enzymatic method. © 1991.
