The resistance of the cell walls of fungi to the action of ultrasound (20 kHz) was studied. The rupture of fungal cells by ultrasound followed a linear model. The Arthrinium francii conidia were more resistant to ultrasound than the conidia of Aspergillus flavus and Penicillium frequentans, but they were more fragile than the Rhizopus arrhizus conidia. The effects of ultrasound on yeasts and on moulds are similar.
